‘Year in, year out Chiara Boschis quietly makes some of the most compelling wines in Barolo with out getting the attention or recognition of some of her neighbours’ ANTONIO GALLONI

The Boschis family purchased E.Pira & Figli in 1981, propelling the young Chiara into a role significantly different to that intended with her economics degree. The family were proprietors of Barolo’s historic Giacomo Borgogno estate, where Chiara originally learnt her winemaking skills. Her philosophy is to craft wines that marry the extraordinary power of Barolo with approachability and the Pira wines are all about elegance, great aromatics and lush textures. This has been achieved through strict vineyard management, careful selection and impeccable vinification techniques. In her vineyards, Chiara has always worked without chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides and the wines have been certified organic since the 2014 vintage.

Tasting Notes

95 Points Vinous
The 2010 Barolo Mosconi, the estate’s first wine from this south-facing site in Monforte, is showing beautifully today. In this cold, late-ripening vintage, the south exposition and richness typical of this site give the Mosconi a level of mid-palate pliancy and richness the other 2010 Barolos don’t have. Mosconi has never given Barolos of finesse or elegance, but this is just about as good as it gets.
