Winemaker Notes

Intense garnet red. Fresh and great complexity of aromas, wild berries, vanilla, chocolate, aromatic herbs. Vigorous and rich in extracts with pleasant tannins. A powerful wine.

There are just two cantinas that produce estate-bottled wine from the 6ha Marenca cru: Luigi Pira and Gaja. Pira has the largest holding in this cru with 2.2ha. 100% Nebbiolo grown in calcareous clay soils. Fermentation and maceration on the skins for 7-10 days. The wine is aged for 1 year in barrique and 1 year in large oak cask followed by 1 year in bottle before release.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
Notes of menthol, medicinal herbs, juniper and eucalyptus swirl around the ripe cherry flavors in this aromatic Barolo, supported by a tough layer of tannins. Extends nicely on the finish, where the underbrush elements echo. Best from 2022 through 2036.

"One of Piedmont’s new superstars… these are wines of extraordinary complexity and breathtaking richness. The spectacular offerings from Pira ’s vineyards in and around Serralunga d’Alba are among the more riveting examples." (Parker)

Established in the early 1950s, at first the estate only produced and sold grapes. Later on, wine was produced and sold in bulk to local negociants. Only a few years ago the estate started ageing and bottling its own wines. Giampaolo Pira recently took the reins at his family’s eight-hectare estate, overseeing the cellars while brother Romolo and father Luigi maintain the vineyards. Pira’s holdings are in the three most prestigious crus in the Serralunga commune: "Margheria," "Marenca," and "Rionda."
