E. Pira & Figli is located in the town of Barolo, facing the Piazza del Peso, at the junction of Via Monforte and Via Vittorio Veneto (also known as Via Nuova). Standing here, one can truly appreciate the considerable effort required to transition from the meticulously tended gardens of the town to the steep hillside vineyards essential for cultivating grapes of exceptional quality.

As a leading winemaker, Chiara Boschis continually strives to craft wines of exceptional quality and innovation, marked by a harmonious balance and traditional integrity. In pursuit of this goal, she initiated separate vinification processes for the Cannubi and Via Nuova vineyards, aiming to highlight their distinct characteristics with precision and depth.

 

"The 2019 Barolo Via Nuova is another gorgeous wine in this tasting. Soaring and broad in its aromatic intensity, the 2019 has it all. The blend of seven sites works so well. Readers will find a seamless, wonderfully complete Barolo. Dried flowers, herbs, mint, rose petal, kirsch and orange zest lend notable complexity throughout. The 2019 is deep and also quite rich, but not at all heavy. There is a touch of oak sweetness, but it just adds to the wine's exotic beauty."

"More citrus character emerges from the 2019 Barolo Via Nuova, which is lifted, elegant, and fresh with orange peel. On the palate, it has outstanding energy, with finely coiled tannins, more linear drive, and refreshing energy in its notes of pomegranate, raspberry, and crushed stones. I love this wine now, and it will be fantastic over the coming decades."

-Jeb Dunnuck, 97 Points

"The 2019 Barolo Via Nuova is a blend of fruit from various sites across multiple villages in the appellation. The wine is immediately open and beautiful, showing dark fruit, cherry, spice, blue flower and potting soils. The healthy fruit in this vintage shows an almost crunchy quality. With climate changes and weather patterns that are becoming increasingly tropical in nature, hail storms are a reoccurring threat. In recent times, they have been especially violent in the village of La Morra. Chiara Boschis installed hail nets in her vineyards seven years ago."
