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 pretty aromas of sweet strawberry pie, with hints of plum and flowers. Full-bodied, with polished yet chewy tannins and bright acidity. A big, juicy wine. A Barolo for the cellar. Best after 2013.”
