E. Pira E Figli Langhe Nebbiolo DOC

This wine is a youthful expression of Nebbiolo, the same grape variety that makes up the region’s most famous wine, Barolo. Some of the younger vines from the Ravera vineyard in Monforte d’Alba are used to produce this Nebbiolo d’Alba. The unique characteristics of this particular parcel of vineyard and terroir are best expressed when the wine is aged in small oak barrels, resulting in a kinder, more delicate wine – a perfect balance between elegance and structure. Elegant perfumes of red fruit on the nose give way to dry, velvety tannins on the palate.


Vinous Media on 2016 vintage

The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo is a very serious wine in its peer group. Aromatically expressive and deep on the palate, with terrific supporting structure, the 2016 has so much to offer. Crushed raspberry, tobacco, dried herbs and mint all grace this exquisite, wonderfully nuanced Langhe Nebbiolo from Chiara Boschis. There is so much character here.


Wine Spectator on 2016 vintage

A more delicate style, boasting red fruit flavors of strawberry and cherry, with a touch of flowers. The structure here is softer and the finish long. Drink now thorugh 2024. 600 cases made, 350 cases imported.


James Suckling on 2015 vintage

Bright strawberries in a fragrant mode, as well as some cedary oak punch. There's a wealth of punchy cherries on offer. Good concentration and balanced fruit for the ample structure, too. Drink or hold.


Wine Advocate on 2015 vintage

The 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo is a food-friendly wine with an easy-drinking personality. Some 30% of this Nebbiolo blend is made with the Rose clone that is so light in color, the clusters look pink when they reach full maturity. In fact, the wine's color is impacted here. It boasts a light garnet or ruby shine. The wine is polished and clean with some drying tannins on the finish. The mouthfeel is compact and streamlined, but the wine ends with a pretty offering of wild berry and blue fower.


Vinous Media on 2015 vintage

Freshly cut flowers and generous sweet red berry fruit give the Langhe Nebbiolo much of its sensuality and overall appeal. Medium in body and nicely lifted, the 2015 is a terrific choice for readers who want to drink a top-notch, artisan wine without spending a fortune. The 2015 is a especially fine edition of this wine. Don't miss it.


Wine Advocate on 2013 vintage

The entry-level 2013 Langhe Nebbiolo offers tonic, bright fruit in a simple context. The wine offers linear tones of cherry, wild berry and pressed blackberry with light accents of spice and tobacco at the back. It ages in neutral oak and the fruit integrity is very intact as a result. In the mouth, this easy Nebbiolo shows tight lines and refreshing acidity. The 2013 vintage is a promising one for this varietal.
