The Pio Cesare winery was founded in 1881 by our great great-grandfather Cesare Pio. He was one of the very first wine producers to believe in the great potential and quality of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera and in the other great wines of Piemonte. Cesare Pio, in the second portion of 1800s, was among the very first winemakers to produce these wines with a philosophy that was dedicated to the terroir and the strictest quality of the wine. For five generations, the Pio Cesare family has been producing traditional Piemontese wines in its ancient cellars, located in the center of the town of Alba.. The cellars walls date back to the Roman Empire period , 50 B.C. Recently, significant investments have been made to rebuild and restructure the cellars and the winery's facilities. A new fermentation cellar was built with a new racking by gravity area and a new barrel ageing room, 12 meters underneath the existing building and the Roman Walls. A brand new bottling and labelling equipment was installed in a newly built portion of the winery Pio Cesare owns more than 50 hectares (130 acres) of vineyards, located in the most highly rated and better exposed areas. Within the Barolo region, the "Ornato" Estate and the "Colombaro" Vineyard ( in Serralunga d’Alba), the "Gustava" Estate ( in Grinzane Cavour), the "Roncaglie" (in La Morra) and "Ravera" (Barolo- Novello). Within the Barbaresco territory, the "Il Bricco" Estate and the "San Stefanetto" Vineyard in Treiso Other selected vineyards are located in the communes of Diano d’Alba, Sinio and Trezzo. In addition to is own vineyards, Pio Cesare has fostered long-term relationships with growers for several generations and manages all aspects of viticulture in these vineyards. These growers have been selling grapes to the family for generations. The wines are fermented and aged using both modern winemaking techniques in tandem with the most traditional methods of the region. After an appropriate ageing in large casks and barriques of different French oaks the wines are bottle-aged before their release.All these elements contribute to the continuously high quality of the wines of Pio Cesare, while paying tribute to the vines and to the terroir. The production of the wines of Pio Cesare is intentionally limited in order to maintain their high quality. Year after year, the wines are ranked among the world's best and most highly regarded. The winery's dedication to quality and respect for tradition and terroir, has allowed Pio Cesare to reach a prominent position among the wine producers of Piemonte. The wines are found in the top restaurants and hotels around the world and are known and respected by the finest wine lovers and collectors. Read less

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 92Losts of plum and blackberry aromas, with hints of wood. Full-bodied, with vanilla and fruit character and a long, flavorful finish. Layered and impressive. Best after 2008.Wine Tasting NotesPio's Barbaresco has quiet class and grace with an elegant body. It is glossy garnet in color with light ruby shades. The bouquet is intense and fragrant, with a hint of violets, cinnamon and vanilla. The palate is dry, full and vigorous, with overtones of peach. The wine has a quiet yet graceful power.

(sample taken from barrique; part of this lot will also go into the classico Saturated ruby-red. Ripe dark fruits, spicy oak and minerals on the nose. Dense and sweet, with the wine's oak element contributing to its impression of firmness and shape. ... Stephen Tanzer. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2001 Pio Cesare Barbaresco Il Bricco 750ml

Medium red. Deep, woodsy aromas of redcurrant, tobacco, mocha, truffle and mint. Then superrich, thick and seamless, with subtle notes of mint and white truffle. Very classically styled Barbaresco, finishing with fine tannins and lingering sweetness.... Stephen Tanzer. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2001 Pio Cesare Barbaresco 1500ml

Shows some wood touches, but the fruit sings loudest in this light and silky yet tannic Barbaresco. Cedar and caramel notes accent cherries, herbs and spice. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.(Wine Enthusiast)
