Barolo Mosconi Pira E. & Figli Chiara Boschis 2019

Tax included

Barolo Mosconi is obtained with the 100% vinification of the oldest vineyard belonging to the property of the same name located in Monforte d'Alba. The soil is typically Helvetian of older formation. These are clayey calcareous marls with a color that tends slightly towards grey, which alternate with siliceous sandstones. In some areas the presence of calcium carbonate and iron gives a warmer chromatic note and a slight tendency towards pink. These soils, located at an altitude of approximately 400m above sea level, give great structure and typical characteristics to long-aged Barolo. The color is intense brown red; the aroma is generally very open with floral hints, ripe fruit, and some spicy notes. In the mouth you can feel the majestic structure of a firm, dry and velvety wine.

Grapes: Nebbiolo (of the Michet and Lampia subvarieties).

Aging: at least 2 years in small French oak barrels, lightly toasted and approximately 1 year of refinement in the bottle.

Three Senses
The color is a beautiful, intense and lively garnet red, with hints of ripe fruit, flowers and light spicy notes; on the palate it is harmonious, full and persistent. Perfect pairings with furred game, braised meats or very tasty red meat dishes but also mature cheeses.

Pira - Chiara Boschis - Barolo

Pira Chiara Boschis

The Piras were an ancient family of winemakers, mentioned in parish registers since the 17th century, who also became winemakers between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Gigi Pira, legendary exponent of the old school of production, created his wines by assembling grapes from his own plots of Cannubi, San Lorenzo and Via Nuova. He maintained that, just as cows must graze on the best pastures to produce excellent milk, only the best vineyards must be chosen for wine. But Pira's attachment to tradition did not stop there: he was in fact the last remaining winemaker to carry out the pressing by foot and the production without the support of any technical means. Since 1980, continuity has been guaranteed by Chiara Boschis and her parents Franco and Ida, already linked to the Pira by deep friendship and mutual esteem and representing a historic family of Barolo producers since the 18th century, now in its 9th generation.

After graduating, Chiara began to follow her passion for wine and its world full time, becoming one of the first female producers of Barolo at the end of the 1980s. Taking care of this "little big house" he brought a breath of renewal to the cellar and to the production style. Since 2010, in the ownership of the company, Chiara has been joined by her brother Giorgio who shares with her the great passion for working in the vineyard and in the cellar, also with thirty years of experience. The work on the vines, strictly manual, is carried out with extreme care and respect for the environment, following the dictates of organic cultivation, for which the company has been certified since the 2014 harvest. Production is very limited (around 40,000 bottles per year), coming from directly produced grapes.
