Luigi Pira Barolo Marenca 2013

SKU 17320


Intense garnet red color. The nose is fresh, with complex perfumes that range from wild berries to vanilla, chocolate and aromatic herbs. On the palate it is very vigorous, rich in extracts, with lively and pleasant tannins that are rounded through a skilful use of wood. A powerful, tantalizing wine with a great ageing potential. 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.

Wine SpectatorNotes 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. 550 cases made.
