La Pira Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

9.3

WNH Barolo theme.

Not having any experience with this producer, I tried a small glass at pop and pour, then decided to decant for an hour and a half. I then enjoyed the bottle over the next two hours.

I’m between a 92 and 93 here. If I had tried this blind, I think I would have taken this to left bank Bordeaux. As odd as that sounds, my reasons are mostly due to hardly any floral notes at all, and a hint of leather on the palate (with both the classic Barolo and Cabernet finish showing drying tannins). The longer this was open, the more cherry menthol notes picked up (but not in a bad way). Red currant, cherry and vanilla Pope tobacco, and underripe fleshy black cherry skin. Sporting a classically warm 2007 profile with richness and tannin, this powered through the entire evening and was best about halfway through. I’m sure it can hold many more years, but this is at a stage where the fruit is fading to the background and savory herbs, dates and fig will soon make their way to the forefront. Just depends on your preferred Barolo style. Enjoyed from a Grassl Cru glass which does a great job of accentuating the aromatics in old world wines.

@Mike R : Ha! Bender was not involved. I was able to source this locally from a cellar. In a beautiful drinking window!

Rosso Langhe Nebbiolo 2013

Outperforms. Hard to think this is a basic Langhe Nebbiolo. Classic Nebbiolo profile, balance, beautiful tannins. Lighter than a full bore Barolo. But still. — 7 days ago

9.2

Does not have the energy and the range of the 2010 and the completeness of the 2016. It does not have the magic of Bartolo, the class of Oddero, and the clarity and transparency of Roagna, but if you delight in delicate refinement, there is nothing like Cavalotto. — 12 days ago

Dolcetto d'Alba 2018

Nice saturated red, fairly transparent. This is a among the best dolcetto I’ve tried, just behind Bartolo. Lovely texture, nothing forced and nicely in balance. 12.5% abv so nicely moderate. Touch of bramble and a slightly spicey grip at the back end. — 3 months ago

La Pira Vecchie Viti Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Old fashioned Barolo, difficult to get the wine to sing at an an outside terasse with a 9.5 centigrade temp outside. Enjoyable a bit austere. — a month ago
