The 2006 Barolo offers up a super-classic profile of tar, roses, raspberries and licorice, all wrapped around a firm core of tannins. Deceptively medium in body, the wine sneaks up on the mid-palate, gaining more and more volume through to the finish.

WA 94pts - According to the Wine Advocate - The 2006 Barolo offers up a super-classic profile of tar, roses, raspberries and licorice, all wrapped around a firm core of tannins. Fresh and vibrant throughout, the Barolo impresses for its superb balance and poise. Deceptively medium in body, the wine sneaks up on the mid-palate, gaining more and more volume through to the finish. There is the subtlest hint of French oak that points to the slightly updated style the estate is going for with this bottling, but not enough to detract from the classic feel. This is a magnificent, impeccable Barolo from Pio Cesare, but it will be even better in a few years. The estate s Barolo is made from a number of vineyards in Serralunga, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra, Novello and other villages. The wine is aged mostly in cask, although 30% sees French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.

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. The Wine Advocate scored this 2006 94 points saying "The 2006 Barolo offers up a super-classic profile of tar, roses, raspberries and licorice, all wrapped around a firm core of tannins.

Wine Enthusoast Magazine scored this 2006 92 points saying "Here is a classic expression of Barolo from a very good vintage that opens with bright fruit aromas that are embellished by carefully measured oak tones. You’ll recognize blackberry, cassis, tobacco, mineral, cola and humus. The tannins are young and this wine requires more years of bottle aging."

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. known primarily for Barolo they also produce first class Barbaresco like this 2006. The Wine Advocate scored this 91 Points saying "The 2006 Barbaresco is an attractive, mid-weight wine. Red berries, sweet spices and crushed flowers are some of the nuances that emerge from this plump, juicy Barbaresco. With a little air, this is already drinking quite nicely. Sweet notes from new oak linger on the pretty finish. The Barbaresco is aged in a combination of 65% cask and 35% smaller French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022." Limited.


Winemaker's Notes:

This is a classic Barolo, with excellent structure and harmony, mild tannins and balanced fruit. It is immediately approachable, but it has a very long ageing potential.
