Chiara Boschis E. Pira & Figli Mosconi Barolo DOCG 2013

E. Pira & Figli is a very small estate in Borolo. While its history dates back to centuries, in 1990 Chiara Boschis bought the estate from E. Pira & Figli after the loss of Luigi Pira. Chiara Boschis produces wines from organically grown Nebbiolo. Her Barolos are known by their approachability, openness, elegance, and lush, intense aromas. Grapes are fermented in steel tanks and aged in new French oak for 2 years and one year in bottle before release.

Mosconi is a tiny vineyard, 0,8 hectare, growing deep and dark and fruits producing powerful, full-bodied and masculine wines. The wine is rich and complex with black cherries, plums, ripe strawberries followed by chocolate and mocha, tobacco, licorice, and woody accents. This wine will age so beautifully.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS

95+ points Wine Advocate
The 2013 Barolo Mosconi shows thicker textural fiber and greater overall power. The Mosconi site is characterized by heavy clay soils that act like a sponge and keep the moisture locked deep within even during the warmest months. The wine opens to coffee and dark fruit with more cherry, spice, tobacco and black truffle at the back. The mouthfeel is generous and wide in appeal, showing tannic firmness that coats the palate. The wine's layering is rich and lasting in intensity. This wine shows excellent possibility for further cellar evolution.—By Monica Larner
94 points Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"Dark, ample and inviting, the 2013 Barolo Mosconi shows the pure power and breadth that is so typical of this site. Black cherry, plum, mocha, smoke, tobacco and licorice are all fused together. The Mosconi presents an especially virile, baritone expression of Nebbiolo, with less finesse than is found in the estate's other Barolos. That said, there is quite a bit of polish to play off the natural richness of Mosconi. The 2013 is an especially refined, layered wine for this site."
93 points Wine Spectator
A core of sweet cherry and strawberry flavors anchors this red, gaining complexity from the additional earth, tar, tobacco, licorice and spice notes. Serious tannins stand guard, showing the potential for evolution. Fine length. Best from 2022 through 2042. 500 cases made.
