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.
Crushed berries, floral notes and a hint of hazelnut. A classic Barolo with savoury notes, this is a full bodied wine which has plenty of power and length and, a very long life ahead it.
Widely sourced, from family-owned vineyards in Novello and Grinzane Cavour as well as more celebrated villages, this Barolo shows admirable opulence on the nose, with sweet cherry fruit but no trace of jamminess. Firm and spicy, it displays excellent vigour and presence, and shows more weight and perhaps better balance than the Barbaresco, and good acidity gives persistence and refinement.
