  • About this winery

    Chiara Boschis has an incredible story. In a region where women winemakers are far from the norm she has built a collection of wines that is the envy of many. The E Pira e Figli estate was passed from father to son for centuries, until the late 1980’s when Luigi Pira passed away.

    Pure roses on the nose. Hints of raspberries and lemon rind. So pure. Full body and ultra-fine tannins. Powerful yet so ethereal and soul-touching. A fabulously crafted Cannubi.

    A great example of site, the 2012 Barolo Cannubi is deep, sensual and beautifully perfumed. The aromatics and pure, creamy texture of Cannubi comes through loud and clear. The Cannubi is a wine of pure texture and voluptuousness, qualities that it shows as layers of fruit blossom in all directions. A host of dark red cherry, plum, mint and spice accompany the generous, caressing finish.

    The 2012 Cannubi is a gorgeous wine in this vintage, which is impressive for its wonderful elegant, refined character and lovely purity throughout. At the moment, this is the most restraint of the bottlings from Chiara Boschis, but does however reveal simply striking aromatics of fresh strawberries and red berries which are laced with rose petals, eucalyptus and a mineral character. On the palate this is medium-bodied, silky and beautifully structured, before finishing up with an exceedingly long, tight gripping finish. While this will require some serious bottle age before it will become fully accessible, it certainly looks to have an extremely promising future ahead for those willing to wait.
