2016 Barolo La Pira, Roagna, Piemonte

£130.00 inc. VAT

Roagna are making some seriously sexy wine at the moment and the 2016 could be their finest La Pira to date.

The La Pira vineyard is one of Roagna’s finest vineyards, with some plantings dating back to the 1930s. It’s a wine that has a huge amount of complexity and richness, but does need a bit of time in the bottle to truly come of age. The 2016 is just beginning to come of of its shell but it has decades of life in it yet.

“The 2016 Barolo Pira is a gorgeous, complex wine endowed with terrific depth and tons of nuance that continues to open over time. Light on its feet and yet wonderfully deep, the 2016 has so much going on. Kirsch, sweet red cherry, spice, orange zest, menthol and spice fill out the layers effortlessly. Young Barolo tannins are present, but there is plenty of richness in the fruit to keep things in balance. The Pira is absolutely stellar in this tasting.95 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
