Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 90
"The 2005 Barolo Vigna Rionda is another wine where the balance is threatened by an excessive use of oak. The Rionda reveals pretty fruit and good depth, with a long, polished finish, even if the tannins are super-sized. It would be nice to see more vineyard character, considering Vigna Rionda is one of the most hallowed sites in the world of wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025. Giampaolo Pira produces some of the most extroverted wines in Barolo. In 2005 his wines reveal a lovely purity to their fruit but because of their relatively modest structures, the wines seem to be dominated by an excessive amount of French oak."
