2007 Barolo Vigna Rionda Luigi Pira

Average critic rating : 94.0 points



The 2007 Barolo Vigna Rionda comes across as quite understated. An open, floral bouquet leads to finely-knit fruit in this intensely perfumed, floral Barolo. This is an especially silky, refined vintage for Pira’s Rionda. The oak is very well balanced, and everything about the wine speaks to harmony. Crushed rose petals, spices, raspberries, licorice and spices linger on the understated, classy finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. ||This is a head-spinning set of wines from Luigi Pira from top to bottom. I would be thrilled to drink any of these wines any day of the week. As always, Pira favors a style based on textural richness. At their best, the wines show an equal amount of elegance.||A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including: de Grazia Imports; tel.

The other Pira. Established in the 1950s and blessed with holdings in Serralunga’s finest vineyards - Margheria, Marenca, and Rionda, the estate only started making their own bottlings in the 1990s.

The wines are bold, rich wines made by one of Piedmont’s most ambitious young winemakers.

“Giampaolo Pira’s Barolos are some of the most massive, rich wines readers are likely to come across, but they rarely fail to deliver the goods.” Antonio Galloni
