Cesare Pio was one of the first people to realise and believe in the quality of Piedmont’s wine, particularly in Barolo. Owning some of the best vineyard in Alba, Pio Cesare is known for blending the different characteristics of each plot in order to produce premium wines that represent the styles of each appellation as a whole.
Very elegant and pure on the nose with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and violets and hints of spice. Silky on the palate with good concentration of fruits and elegant tannins.
Toast, pressed rose, dark spice and wild berry aromas form the nose. Polished and structured, the elegant palate delivers raspberry compote, sour cherry, licorice and a hint of tobacco framed in taut fine-grained tannins. Drink 2021–2029- 92 pts Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
