This is an excellent Barolo from Pira and the 2011 vintage. It opens to attractive aromas of licorice and earth, The palate is full bodied, the tannins very firm and the finish is long with attractive sour cherry characters. Yes. Approachable now or over the next decade or more. Rating: Very Good. Abv: 14.5. Price: $80. Website: https://www.piraluigi.it/en/. Reviewed: May 2020.
