    The 2013 Barolo Pira is dark and powerful to its core. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure the 2013 is all nerves and muscle. Iron blood smoke cedar smoke and licorice give the 2013 much of its super-distinctive flavor profile. In the glass the 2013 is wonderfully deep and exotic with layers of dimension that open up effortlessly over time. Readers will have to be patient with the 2013 but it is hugely promising. Sadly prices for the Roagna wines have gone up dramatically in recent years. If there is one wine that readers should absolutely not miss it is the 2013 Barolo Pira.

    Haunting aromas and flavors of graphite macerated cherry strawberry rose hip tea and tar are the hallmarks of this complex vibrant red. Impeccably balanced fresh and long with a lingering minerally aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2043.
