"The 2012 Barolo Pira is deep, dense and voluptuous, especially for the vintage. There is plenty of Roagna structure, but the tannins are nearly buried by the sheer density of the fruit. Sweet herbs, tobacco, underbrush, menthol and licorice give the Pira a wild, unrestrained side that I personally find hugely appealing. If there is one wine readers should not miss in this set of new releases, the 2012 Pira is it. What a wine!" 96pts ANTONIO GALLONI, www.vinous.com

Dark cherry, liquorice, floral perfume and dried herbs, baking spices. Rich, though only medium to full-bodied, fat tannin and deep flavour, yet stays fine and fresh. Has verve and length. Ropes of tannin pull on the finish, and put wind in its sails. A little wildness tussles the hair. A complete wine, with so much character. Will live a very long time. Wonderful." 96pts GARY WALSH, www.winefront.com.au
