Leather and cherry on the nose. Bright violets in the mouth with medium acidity. Licorice, coffee bay leaf and cigar wrapper later on the mid palate and a sour cherry finish. White chocolate notes linger.

Ruby red in colour, accompanied by fairly intense aromas - berries, vanilla, spices. Additional herbs in flavor. Notable acids and medium tannins in a medium-bodied and vigorous structure. Moderately complex with nice and long finish. Pair this with "herbal stews". 78 points. Not fully worth its price.

    The Barbera grapes grown in the Barolo area, give full structure, plummy and complex flavour, with spicy and ripefruit, blackberry aroma and a hint of toasted tobacco. It ages quite well.

    Nice nose of berries, cherry, spice, and vanilla. Fruity on the palate, with a backbone of acidity. Pleasant finish with more berries.

    Full ruby-red. Plum, currant, black cherry, and cedary, spicy oak on the nose. Sweet, spicy and full, with good density and lovely verve. Finishes spicy and persistent.

    This wine announces its modern intentions with polished opening notes of vanilla, caramel and coffee from aging in small French oak barrels. The intense palate shows cherry and boysenberry fruit which lead into a long, very complex finish. Will gain more complexity with a few years in the cellar but may be drunk now for the appeal of its youthful fruit.

    Shows blueberry and floral aromas, with hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, with cream and vanilla character. This is tight and solid - and just right now. Drink now.

    Pio Cesare Barbera d'Alba 2007: Das intensive Granatrot strahlt im Glas mit einem ziegelroten Rand. Seine Mineralität und delikate Holzwürze werden von einem edlen Bukett aus Trockenfrüchten und Pflaumen untermalt. Dieser Barbera begeistert mit einer feinen Säure und seidigen Tanninen, er ist feingliedrig und sehr elegant. Ein sanfter Verführer mit einer hohen Komplexität, der wunderbar zu in Rotwein geschmortem Kaninchen, Tagliatelle mit Trüffeln, Wildschweinbraten oder reifem Käse passt. Er kann sein großartiges Potential am besten entfalten, wenn er eine Stunde vor dem Servieren geöffnet wird.Der Barbera ist eine der brilliantesten Rebsorten des Piemont und bringt sehr hochwertige Weine mit einer kraftvollen Struktur hervor. Diese Weine sind typischerweise sehr körperreich, haben einen geringen Tanningehalt und begeistern mit Pflaumenaromen. Durch die perfekte Säurestruktur haben die Weine ein gutes Alterunspotential.Der Barbera stammt von Alba, einem der besten Anbaugebiet für die Herstellung anspruchsvoller Dolcetto-Weine, zwischen Barbaresco und Barolo. Der Qualitätswein, der seit 1974 den DOC-Status trägt, wird auf nur 2000 Hektar Rebfläche angebaut.Weingut: Pio CesareRegion: PiemontRebsorte: 100% BarberaInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Fassreife: in Barriques gereift (20 Monate) Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CLagerfähigkeit: 7-10 Jahre Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Barbera

    Fruity and fun, with red currant jelly, minerals and a hint of fresh herbs. Medium- to full-bodied, with good silky concentration on the palate and a chocolaty note on the finish. Drink now.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    This historic family-owned estate is named after its founder Cesare Pio, who established the business in 1881. It is based in Alba in the heart of the Piemonte region, nestled between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea. The surrounding hills provide a handful of ideal exposures for grape growing with unique micro-climates. The confluence of cold Alpine air with warm maritime moisture regularly creates a misty glow, or ‘nebbia’, over these foothills, hence Nebbiolo, the great red variety of the region. The grapes come from selected vineyards in the villages of Monforte and Castiglione Falletto and from grapes in our own vineyards in the villages of Serralunga and Treiso. The grapes undergo very careful selection to eliminate all imperfections - even one rotten or moldy grape could spoil the entire batch. The vintage takes place around mid-October, just a little before that of Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo and Barbaresco. This Barbera is a wine quite different from many other Barbera. This is due to the fact that the Barbera grapes are grown alongside the Nebbiolo grapes. This, combined with the extensive barrel ageing, results in a wine with the strength and wild energy of a Barbera, but the refined elegance of Barolo. This is a unique wine - full and brave, rich and aristocratic, yet soft and supple. The nose is full of dark cherry tones with tobacco and toasty hints. The palate is plummy with spicy ripe fruit and blackberry overtones.
