The Barolos of Serralunga d’Alba have a bit of a reputation. The region¬†is held in high regard for rich, intense, structured Barolo. Pio Cesare’s single-vineyard Barolo comes from three plots in the family’s Ornato Estate, one of Barolo’s top vineyards, in the western part of the commune. The fruit is exceptionally ripe, and¬†consistently produces bright, robust, focused wines with incredible complexity and length.

 

“Very beautiful aromas of berry, tar and rose follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish of berry and vanilla. Very, very impressive. Polished and structured. Best after 2010. 1,000 cases made.”
