LUIGI PIRA Barolo 'Vigna Rionda' 2011


2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #58

The 'Vigna Rionda’ Barolo is another spectacular showing from Pira in 2011. This absolutely beautiful Barolo opens with striking aromas of freshly ripe strawberries and cherries, which are immediately followed by mint, fresh violets, minerals and some sweet spices. It continues to impress as it expands onto the palate with remarkable balance and precision. Everything comes together in harmonious fashion as it resonates delicious red fruits through the long finish. This is already extremely appealing, but will certainly improve as it evolves over time.
