2017 Luigi Pira Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba
With fruit sourced from throughout this important Barolo subzone, the Luigi Pira 2017 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba shows some ripeness with dried raspberry and sweet cherry. The wine delivers spice, smoke and tilled earth with some of the iron ore or rusty aromas that are so specific to this village in the Barolo appellation. To the palate, it delivers soft tannins and a mid-weight build with all the makings for another fine cut of steak. Drink 2023 - 2037.
Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (June 2021)
A firm and juicy 2014 with leather, light tar and dark-berry aromas and flavors. Medium body. Fresh finish. Drink or hold.
The 2017 Barolo Del Comune Di Serralunga D'Alba is brooding with clove, chocolate covered orange, and saddle leather. The palate is fully ripe, with freshness on the back of the palate noted by ripe cherry, tea leaf, and forest floor, and tannins that creep up and make a statement. Drink 2024-2038.
