Chiara Boschis is the ninth generation winemaker in her family. The Boschis had long owned Giacomo Borgogno e Figli, when in 1980 they acquired the prestigious E. Pira & Figli estate in Barolo. Chiara had studied economics, and after completing her studies, returned to the family business. In 1990, she took over the company reigns. At this time she was well on her way to being recognized as one of the most powerful and important women in the Barolo wine world, eventually earning the cheeky and endearing nickname of “Barolo Girl,” as she was the only woman in a group of young winemakers in Barolo who called themselves “the Barolo Boys.” Flash to 2010, Chiara’s younger brother, Giorgio, joins her in the winemaker, bringing with him his own 30+ years of experience in both the cellar and the vineyards. Chiara’s approach to winemaking begins as a farmer. In the vineyard, all the work is carried out manually, employing organic practices, and combining sound ancestral practices, with modern, state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. This is a small, boutique, operation, producing just 5,000 cases per year from 11 hectares all of which are in the top crus of Barolo. There are 2 hectares in the village of Barolo; Cannubi, Liste, and Terlo. There are 8 hectares in Monforte d’Alba; Conterni, Mosconi, Ravera, and Le Coste. Finally, there is just 1 hectare of Serralunga d’Alba; Gabutti and Baudana. Single vineyard wines are made from Cannubi and Mosconi, with the objective of showing off their unique characteristics. A traditional wine called Via Nuova Barolo is made from six Barolo vineyards. Additionally, Chiara produces  Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba, and a Nebbiolo d’Alba.


The vineyards all share some wonderful attributes; exposure, micro-climates, and excellent soil compositions. Given Chiara’s focus and tenacity, they have become part of the Green Experience. This is a gropu of Piemontese producers, focused on eco-friendly, sustainable viticulture. All of her wines are made from certified organic grapes. All of the wines are made in Barolo, employing as little intrusion into the process as possible, and bottled without fining and filtration.


Langhe Nebbiolo


This is 100% Nebbiolo, made largely from younger vines in the Ravera vineyard in Monforte d’Alba. The wine is aged for 14 months in used French oak barriques, followed by a minimum of 2 months of aging in the bottle before release. The nose on this is quite fruit-driven. On the tongue, the tannins are silky, coiling eemlessly around the deep, red, fruit, exotic earth notes, and savoury acids. This would be wonderful with a mixed plate of charcuterie, and tons of very well-aged cheeses.


Barolo Mosconi


This is 100% Nebbiolo sourced from the Mosconi vineyard, the oldest of the Mosconi Vineyard holdings, in Monforte d’Alba. The soils here are heavier clay-rich calcareous marl, and deposits of siliceous sandstone. Some areas show bits of calcium carbonate and iron. These latter areas are at altitudes around 400 meters above sea level. These contribute excellent structure, which adds to the aging potential of this wine. Mosconi is aged a minimum of two years in small French oak barrels with light toasting. The wine is then aged another 1 year further in bottle, prior to release. This wine is typically darker in colour; a potent brownish red. The nose is generously floral, fruity, spicy, and earthy.  The palate confirms these notes, bound to excellent structural attributes including high, yet integrated acids, significant yet graceful tannins, and fruity, yet very dry mouth feel. This wine, after decanting, is ideal with braised short ribs, mushroom ragout with aged cheddar, or intense game dishes.


Barolo Cannubi


This is 100% Nebbiolo from Cannubi, arguably the most famous Cru of Barolo. This site offers an ideal southern exposure, and soils ideal to the production of highly idiosyncratic wines; sandy blended with those of Tortonian and Helvetian origin. It is aged for 2 years in oak, followed by a full year of bottle aging prior to release. On the nose and the palate, Cannubi offers ripe cherries, red plums, violets, balsamic, and baking spices. This wine is where power and sophistication meet harmoniously. The tannins are ample and savoury on the long finish.

Drink with braised lamb shanks, well-aged cheeses, or duck confit.


Barolo Via Nuova


This is 100% Nebbiolo sourced from Terlo and Liste in Barolo, Gabutti and Baudana from Serralunga d’Alba, and Ravera di Monforte and Mosconi from Monforte d’Alba. The name “Via Nuova” is derived from a vineyard that was named for its proximity to an old road, now just a foot path, connecting the towns of Barolo and Novello. This Barolo is aged for 2 years in French oak barrels and barriques, followed by 1 year of bottle aging prior to release. It is bright garnet red, very floral and fruity on the nose. On the palate, the fruits are replete with sour cherries, barely ripe raspberries, kirsch, and savoury earth notes, all resting on beam of tannins and acids. Drink with game, braised meats, seasoned charcuterie, and very matured cheeses.
