Average critic rating : 92.5 points



Soft and silky texture to this red with plum, berry and cherry character. Full body and a silky textured finish. Needs till at least 2018. Excellent. James Suckling. April, 2015.



With fruit sourced from various vineyard sites across the appellation, the 2011 Barolo Via Nuova is edgier and sharper than the other two Barolos presented by Chiara Boschis this year. This expression is more vertical and immediate with bright aromas of white cherry, cassis, dried ginger and blue flower. Unlike many of its peers made in this warm vintage, Barolo Via Nuova is delicate, feminine and ethereal. It already shows beautifully at this young stage. ||Chiara Boschis is spearheading a movement to convince the 20 or so wineries that farm the Cannubi vineyard to convert to organic farming as a collective group. Because vineyard plots in this historic cru are so small and sandwiched so closely together, it really does come down to an all or nothing approach. If her proposal is successful and consensus on organic farming is reached, Cannubi would become a model for the rest of Italian wine. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015

Chiara Boschis bought this estate in 1980, and it is impossible not to be seduced by Chiara’s energy and charm. Her wines are equally disarming. A modern producer whose wines are pure, lifted and energetic.

“A producer whose wines merit far more attention than they receive” Antonio Galloni
