    I love the purity, and classic Serralunga flavors in this wine, it has loads of gravelly, cigar ash aromatics with floral hints of roses while darker fruits make the more prominent statement. On the palate the thing that stands out for me is the textural richness, sometimes commune level Barolo can be a bit gritty with un-ripened tannins wine but this wine has richness, sweet tannins and gives one the impression of size. The flavors are darker fruit, as the base component then more spice and leather while finishing up with layers of spice, and bits of leather. An excellent, long finish, no drying tannin just complete flavors that are superbly balanced, making it a Serralunga Barolo you can drink now!

    Luciano Pira, owner and winemaker at Schiavenza, makes some of the most traditional style Barolos in Serralunga. All of his wines are aged in large Slavonian oak casks and he is always one of the last among his peers to release them. His 2012 is truly a snapshot of the vintage as it's fresh, aromatic and approachable as well. Cherry and plum fruits, earthy minerals and hints of licorice are on display on both nose and palate and the wine remains elegant and lively throughout. This is a truly well made Barolo that can be opened now or appreciated over the next few years if cellared properly.
