Description

Piedmont had a very unusual growing season in 2012, which meant that not every producer made great Barolo. Yet the historical excellence of Pio Cesare shone through yet again, impressing us, and the critics, with a strong and very classical offering.

Smells

Gorgeous rose florals with berries, cherries, subtle dried herbs and hazelnut.

Tastes

Energetic and youthful on the palate, it is light on its feet and already very delicious and seductive. 30 months in oak has structured this wine for cellaring, expect it to be at its best after 2019, and keep for another decade at least.
