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).
