2017 chiara boschis (azienda agricola e. pira e figli), barolo, via nuova
Why We're Buying
While Chiara Boschis is best known for Cannubi, Nuova is also worthy of your attention. The 100% nebbiolo has become one of the most popular and hardest to find Barolos since E. Pira & Figli opened in 1990.
The 2017 Barolo Via Nuova is stellar. Bright red-toned fruit, chalk, crushed rocks, mint and white pepper add pretty aromatic top notes. Via Nuova is a blend of seven vineyard sites; Terlo, Paiagallo and Liste (in Barolo); Ravera and Mosconi (in Monforte); and Gabutti and Baudana (in Serralunga).
