Chiara Boschis

About Chiara Boschis

A true icon of Barolo, the enigmatic Chiara Boschis came to inherit the incredible Pira estate through a twist of fate. A family friend of the Boschis family, Luigi Pira was the last member of his family at the helm of his ancestorial label until his tragic death in 1980. In the absence of any Pira blood to take over, Chiara Boschis was the perfect candidate to both continue the Pira legacy and forge a new legend for herself and Barolo.

 

The first fully autonomous female winemaker in Barolo, Boschis took a similar path as the rest of the famous “Barolo Boys”, implementing a more concentrated, more approachable style of wine throughout the 1980s which proved to be exceedingly popular. As much as any producer in this group, Chiara should be credited with the formidable reputation of modern-day Barolo around the world.

 

Over the past decade or so, however, the wines of E.Pira di Chiara Boschis have perhaps settled into a happy medium between the austere, aristocratic Barolos of the past and the generous wines of the late 20th century. Put plainly, in the words of Monica Larner (Wine Advocate), “all of her wines are simply stunning”. Perpetually evolving and refining her winemaking in a quest for perfection, these wines are always some of the most exciting in Piedmont, if not the whole of Italy.

 

Viniculture

Barolo Cannubi is by rights the flagship wine of E.Pira di Chiara Boschis, coming from the legendary cru of the same name – of which Boschis owns a fair few vines in the choice sections. Famed for its incredibly elegant and hauntingly perfumed wines, Chiara’s 0.7-hectare portion gives life to unbelievably beautiful wine.

 

A recent addition to the E.Pira di Chiara Boschis range, Barolo Mosconi is a fabled single-vineyard found in the village of Monforte d'Alba.

Vinous (95)

The 2012 Barolo Cannubi is super-finessed, open-knit and gracious, with striking aromatic lift and plenty of precision. Bright red stone fruit, chalk and white pepper give the 2012 its distinctive aromatic signatures. Soft tannins and exceptional balance add to the wine's considerable appeal. The 2012 is a bit more buttoned up than it was last year, but every bit as beautiful. This is a gorgeous Barolo from Chiara Boschis.

Wine Advocate (94)

The 2012 Barolo Mosconi is one of the big surprises of this tasting. This is a gorgeous expression with a deep and enduring sense of balance. The wine offers excellent intensity with black fruit and spice, nicely contrasted against more subtle tones of licorice, red rose and polished river stone. The tannins are firm and tight, yet they show the latitude needed for long cellar-aging.

Vinous (100)

In my opinion, the 2016 Barolo Via Nuova is the single greatest Barolo Chiara Boschis has made in her storied career. A monumental, thrilling wine, the Via Nuova captures all the best the vintage had to give. Explosive in the glass, with stunning aromatic depth, the 2016 is drop-dead gorgeous from the very first taste. Dark macerated cherry, lavender, spice, menthol and rose petal are kicked up a few notches from underlying veins of acidity and tannin that give the wine its energy and drive. The 2016 is a wine of extraordinary harmony, purity and finesse with an eternal finish. The 2016 Barolo Via Nuova is a blend of seven plots: Terlo, Liste, Paiagallo, Ravera di Monforte, Mosconi, Gabutti and Baudana.
