Why We're Buying
"We wanted to make Barolo the best we could." That was the vision of E Pira E Figli owner Chiara Boschis when creating her Barolo. Considering the high demand and rising price tag, she’s made the dream a reality.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Barolo Cannubi is the “timid” wine of the bunch with subtle mint tones backed by flowers, licorice stick and a touch of distant cinnamon. It shows distinct mineral nuances from the silky, sandy soils that characterize the highest part of the single vineyard. It has southern exposures, but thanks to underground water supplies, older vines with deep root systems never suffer from heat stress. The finish is silky and clean with a touch of dried mint that is a trademark characteristic of this cru. Drink: 2017-2030. - Monica Larner
