"One of Piedmont’s superstars… these are wines of extraordinary complexity and breathtaking richness. The spectacular offerings from Pira’s vineyards in and around Serralunga d’Alba are among the more riveting examples.” – Robert Parker

"These are some of the very best wines I have tasted from Giampaolo Pira. What an exciting range this is. Pira's straight Barolo has long been terrific, as it is once again this year. The vineyard-designated wines show plenty of the power that has long been a signature here but with a touch more classicism". Antonio Galloni, Vinous on the 2019 wines.

The Pira family has been growing grapes around the hills Seralunga d'Alba for over 60 years. After selling fruit and wine to some of the biggest wineries in the region for well over 50 years, Luigis son Gianpaolo decided in the late 80s to set up a winery and start production of their own. The sheer quality of this estate is what blew us away it is the full package. Producing Barolo from 3 tiny parcels of Nebbiolo and bottling these as single vineyard wines, the pira family has set their sights on producing classic, terroir driven wines. Besides the Crus, Pira also produces the Barolo Serralunga, obtained from Nebbiolo grapes destined to the production of Barolo and cultivated on "Le Rivette" vines and from the vineyards located in the lowest part of Marenca and Margheria. Its western exposure and the calcareous-clayish soil give a classic and full-bodied Barolo. Le Rivette is to the east of Marenca and nestles into the hill as it moves around the corner so the site is both south facing and slightly west facing.

The 2019 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba is dark, sumptuous and super-expressive. A burst of dark red/purplish fruit opens first, followed by rose petal, lavender, blood orange and spice notes that add character. This is a superb village wine. Don't miss it. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
