  • About this winery

    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.

    Chiara Boschis has united 26 producers across the Cannubi hill to create a bio-district. As of 2015, 80% of the vineyards are farmed organically. Boschis' single parcel, not quite one hectare, is in Cannubi proper. Aged predominately in barrique, one-third new, it now includes a small portion of larger casks too. The 2013 is completely enchanting and immediately expressive, yet still offers great depth and ageing potential. With a gorgeous silky texture, this is pure finesse.

    Antonio Galloni, February 2017

    The 2013 Barolo Cannubi is silky, vibrant and wonderfully perfumed. Sweet floral notes, meld into a core of bright red cherry, mint, white pepper and white flowers. Aromatically precise and finely sculpted, the 2013 possesses superb balance. In 2013, the Cannubi is all class. This is one of the most refined and gracious of Chiara Boschis' 2013 Barolos and a very typical wine for the vintage. In a word: terrific!

    August 2017

    The 2013 Cannubi is a simply magical wine from Chiara Boschis in this vintage. Elegant and refined, this Barolo opens to striking aromas of cherries and sweet red berries which are laced by fresh floral, mint and hints of exotic spices, all taking shape in this stunning wine. Medium-bodied, this displays remarkable overall balance and finesse with excellent poise. The finish is long and precise as it leaves a lasting impression. An absolute beautiful wine which will last decades.
