"Year in, year out Chiara Boschis quietly makes some of the most compelling wines in Barolo..." - Antonio Galloni
When looking for the next superstar of Piemonte, the understated artisanal operation of E Pira & Figli might easily be overlooked, but according to Galloni, is "a producer whose wines merit far more attention than they receive." Her 2013 Barolo 'Mosconi' is a hit among multiple critics and you won't find it for less than $60 anywhere else!
For those that crave inspiring, multi-dimensional, and ageable wines, Barolo does it like few other regions. And Chiara Boschis of E Pira & Figli does it like few others, hitting the perfect sweet spot as a producer that "has long made some of the prettiest Baroli in town," according to Galloni.
And the excitement is building for the 2013 Baroli, with Galloni hailing the "utterly captivating wines that speak to the pedigree and class that are the signatures of the best Barolo vintages." The Wine Advocate echoes the sentiment, calling 2013 "a return to the classics...If you love age-worthy Nebbiolo, then stock your cellar with 2013 Barolo." What better place to look than here, with Boschis turning out 2013s that "are brisk and salivating, which is to say very much in the style of the year" (AG).
The wines of E. Pira & Figli are consistently fabulous, and have positioned themselves as some of the top Baroli over the last decade, carrying a spectacular expression of place and a deft sense of balance.
