The 2010 Barolo Pira is the first wine vinified in Roagna’s new cellar in Castiglione Falletto. Powerful and virile, the Barolo Pira possesses a level of density far and above that found in any of the Barbarescos of the same vintage. Then again, that’s why it is Barolo. Crushed rose petal, game, sweet red cherry, plum, , dried herbs, mint and smoke are some of the many notes that flesh out in this beautifully delineated, super-classic wine, while hints of game, smoke, licorice and tobacco add the final shades of nuance. The 2010 Barolo Pira is an old-school knockout. It’s as simple as that.
