Chiara Boschis Barolo Via Nuova 2010


In stock

SKU: 19855 Categories: ,


The 2010 Barolo Via Nuova opens with exquisite inner perfume and sweetness. Crushed rose petals, mint, pine, licorice and sweet red berries all lift out of the glass in a fragrant, aromatically expressive Barolo of the highest level. The 2010 has it all; perfume, fruit, intense, crystalline salinity and bracing, chalky, young Nebbiolo tannins that will help the wine age gracefully for years. Beginning in 2010, the Via Nuova is a multi-vineyard Barolo comprised of fruit from Terlo, Liste, Gabutti, Baudana, Ravera (di Monforte) and young vines in Mosconi. Chiara Boschis had trademarked Via Nuova as a proprietary name. Up until 2010 Via Nuova was an alternate name for the Terlo vineyard in Barolo. Going forward, all wines from that site must be called Terlo. In the meantime, Boschis acquired a number of small parcels, each too small in scale to be bottled separately, so she chose to make one multi-commune Barolo and keep her existing Via Nuova name. One of the wines of the vintage. 96/100 points, Antonio Galloni

Winemaking Approach





Producer Information: Chiara Boschis

The Pira were an ancient family of wine growers, mentioned in the parish registers since the seventeenth century, who also became winemakers between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Gigi Pira, legendary exponent of the old school of production, created his wines by assembling the grapes from his own plots of Cannubi, San Lorenzo and Via Nuova.

Since 1980, continuity has been guaranteed by Chiara Boschis and her parents Franco and Ida, already linked to the Pira by deep friendship and mutual respect and representing a historic family of Barolo producers from the 1700s, now in its 9th generation.
