Tasting Note:

Surely the best Pira Luca has made. A mix of delicate fragrant fruit aromas, and a sturdy, steadying but refined structure on the palate. Inviting, soft red berry and cherry fruit, both lifted and grounded. Great clarity, solidity and complexity. So complete. Facing Serralunga, a south east exposure, Pira is the lower part of the famous Rocche di Castiglione cru and is a monopole of the Roagna family. The soils here are a complex mixture of sand, clay limestone and blue marl. The vineyard exposure gives the wine that important underlying freshness. Vinified for 60 days on the skins before ageing for 5 years in large used wooden tanks. 14.12%
