Pio Cesare

The Nebbiolo for this Barolo was sourced from a number of family-owned vineyards: Ornato in Serralunga d’Alba, Gustava in Grinzane Cavour, Roncaglie at La Morra, and Ravera in Barolo-Novello. The balance of the grapes comes from growers the Cesare family has worked with for years.

The fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks (up to one month of skin contact), then the wine was transferred to French oak (the majority in 20 to 50 hectolitre casks, the remainder in smaller barriques) where it matured for three years.

Pio Cesare produces classic Barolo at a very high level. That expertise is apparent in the wine’s structure, harmony, gentle tannins, and balanced fruit. It is immediately approachable, but with very long ageing potential.

“Very primary fruit with beautiful aromas of peaches, strawberries, berries and flowers. It’s medium- to full-bodied, with bitter citrus, cedar, chocolate and coffee bean character. Tight at the end. From five villages, primarily Serralunga, Monforte, La Morra, Grinzane Cavour, and Novello. Needs two or three years to open and will age for a very long time.”

“A youthful ripe ruby color, the 2020 Barolo Pio is fresh and inviting, with perfumed aromas of rose petals, spiced strawberries, and dusty earth. Elegant and juicy, it’s easy-drinking, with fine tannins and juicy freshness within a medium-bodied frame, and it has good length for an entry Barolo. It captures all the graceful elements of this vintage and has a tremendous amount of charm as well as a complete feel. Enjoy it now or over the next 10 years. It would be a great by-the-glass offering if the price is right.”
