Domaine Luigi Pira is linked to the hills of Serralunga d'Alba, Italy. This land of great wines, in the heart of the Barolo region, has existed since the late 19th century. From the 1950s onwards, Luigi Pira transformed the estate into a popular address in Italy's Piedmont region. In the early 1990s, with the arrival of Luigi Pira's sons, the identity of this great Langhe wine gained in quality. The terroir of Serralunga produces exceptional red wines, where Barolo reigns supreme.
The geographical location of Domaine Luigi Pira
Domaine Luigi Pira covers 12 hectares. It is divided into several parcels: Barolo Nebbiolo (6 hectares), Barbera (2 hectares), Dolcetto (2.5 hectares) and Nebbiolo (1.5 hectares for Langhe Nebbiolo). Most of the vineyards are located in Serralunga d'Alba, on the western side overlooking Monforte d'Alba. Cru Marenca covers 2 hectares. To the west of Serralunga d'Alba, Barolo offers a powerful wine, reflecting the particularities of the appellation. The Margheria vineyard covers 1.5 hectares and produces a historic cru from the Luigi Pira winery. This terroir creates a classic, elegant Barolo. The youngest cru, Vigna Rionda, was born in 1994. It is the Barolo wine par excellence, produced in Serralunga d'Alba.
