Description

Pio Cesare are one of the stalwarts of Piedmont producing high quality and very traditional styled Barolo. This wine is made from grapes coming from many different subregions within Barolo using the classic “formula” as used by ancient Barolo Families for centuries, to make a wine which embraces and combines each of the unique characteristics of the different vineyards and terroirs of the Barolo area. A tried-and-true Barolo, setting the benchmark for the region.

Smells

floral perfumes lift from the glass, offering alluring aromas of rose, wild red berries, crushed thyme and an under thread of tar and red earth.

Tastes

The palate is full, yet showing elegance at the same time, with firm, slightly grippy tannins that titillate the cheeks. There is a sweetness of fruit flavours, raspberries, cherries, strawberries and milk chocolate, a superb combination with the taut, slightly tannic/acid backbone. Long, intense and inviting but will benefit for 4-5 years+ in bottle. Serve with ragu or roasted red meats.
