  • Dolcetto d'Alba from the Luigi Pira domaine is aged in stainless steel vats for 9 months. It exudes aromas of crisp, fresh red berries and boasts subtly floral notes. It is very even on the palate, delivering a superb balance between freshness, structure and volume, with an outstandingly long finish.

    The domaine was established in 1950 by Luigi Pira. It is located in Serralunga d'Alba, in the heart of the Langhe region near Barolo and in the vicinity of other prestigious domaines such as Angelo Gaja’s vineyard. It is without a shadow of a doubt a rising star among the Piedmont vineyards. The Azienda spans some ten hectares on the Marenca, Margheria and Vignarionda terroirs. In fact, it shares some parcels with Angelo Gaja, another major Piedmontese big hitter. Cultivated without chemicals, the vines produce powerful structured wines which are richly complex. It gets the most out of its Nebbiolo grapes but is still in the shadow of certain Barolo stars. It is a boon for fine Italian wine aficionados. Gianpaolo Pira has now taken over the reins at the domaine. It is setting the bar high and its wines have the potential to age for 25 years and sometimes more.
