92 Points - Wine Spectator "Very ripe fruit aromas, with sultanas and prunes. Dried flowers too. Full-bodied, with seamless, yet chewy tannins and a long finish. Lasts a long time, always great. Best after 2012."

This Barolo has always been produced through careful blending of grapes from different vineyards. Pio Cesare stubbornly sticks to this tradition because they believe that the union of grapes from different vineyards makes their Barolo unique. The grapes from Serralunga give a full body the ones from Castiglione Falletto offer an ethereal and tempting nose and those from Monforte provide class and a refined nature. This produces a unique and inimitable wine.

Year after year, Pio Cesare Barolos are ranked among the world's best. The Pio Cesare family takes a modern approach to quality winemaking. Their unique method stresses minimal intervention to produce wines of particularly supple flavor expression. The Nebbiolo grapes used to produce Pio’s Barolo come from the family vineyards around the village of Serralunga d’Alba. These grapes account for about 70% of production, with additional grapes sourced from the most favorable areas in Castiglione Falletto and Monforte, the same stock they have used for the last hundred years. The grapes from Serralunga give a full body, those from Castiglione Falletto offer an ethereal and tempting nose, and the fruits from Monforte provide class and a refined nature. Aged in 30% new French oak for 2 years the wine is then put in 50% new Slavonian oak for another 3 years. Dense, concentrated and tightly wound. Scored 93 points by Wine Spectator who said " Very ripe fruit aromas, with sultana, prune and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with seamless yet chewy tannins and a long finish. Lasts a long time."

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 are sourced mostly from family-owned vineyards in Serralunga d’Alba (Ornato), Grinzane Cavour (Gustava), La Morra (Roncaglie), Barolo-Novello (Ravera). The balance comes from other exclusive vineyards owned by growers who have been providing grapes to the Pio Family for generations. The wine is aged in mid toasted French oak for 3 years: 70% in 20 to 50 hectoliters casks and 30% in barriques.
