E Pira-Chiara Boschis - Barolo 2014 & 2015

Chiara Boschis has an incredible story. In a region where women winemakers are far from the norm she has built a collection of wines that is the envy of many. The E Pira e Figli estate was passed from father to son for centuries, until the late 1980’s when Luigi Pira passed away. At that time his sisters who inherited the vineyards felt that they could no longer maintain the estate. Hoping to keep the tradition alive they sold the estate to Chiara Boschis whose family had long been friends of the Pira’s. Crackling with energy and determination Chiara has proceeded to turn out one fantastic wine after another from her small parcels totaling 6 ha (including a small portion of the famed Cannubi vineyard). Small in stature, but exuding confidence and passion, Chiara produces some of the most refined and elegant wines in the region.

Chiara is incredibly generous with her time and energy and is a passionate advocate of organic and biodynamic viticulture and has brought her considerable determination, charm, patience and confidence to bear on raising the quality and image of Pira to that which it enjoys today. Her philosophy is to craft wines that marry the extraordinary power of Barolo with approachability, promoting great aromatics, lush textures and elegance. This has been achieved through strict vineyard management, careful selection and impeccable vinification techniques. Chiara has recently been joined by her brother Giorgio, and the two have expanded their Barolo vineyards to now include Mosconi and Ravera in Monforte and Gabutti in Serralunga.
