About This Item

Overview:The Pio Cesare family’s unique winemaking method stresses minimal intervention to produce wines of particularly supple flavor expression. A ceaseless devotion to the individuality of each of the region’s wines informs Pio Cesare’s choices in the cellar: shorter maceration, separate lot fermentation, judicious selection for barrel and large cask aging, and bottling schedules determined by the ideal structure of each wine. This allows Pio Cesare to craft wines of varying weight, ageability and drinkability as determined by the vineyard rather than market fashion.

This is a single-vineyard Barolo from grapes sourced from the oldest Nebbiolo vines (1945 and 1971) in the family's famous Mosconi vineyard in Monforte d’Alba.
The grapes are softly crushed and destemmed at the winery's ancient cellars in the center of Alba. Fermented in two stainless steel tanks for ten days: the skin cap, frequently punched down, reached a maximum temperature of 86°F. Maceration on the skins for over 30 days.

Tasting Notes: Shiny, rich garnet red. Very fragrant nose with notes of pomegranate and rhubarb, some resinous notes, rich cherry, some blood orange. Compact and at the same time polished tannin, opens continuously and finely, shows fine ripe fruit notes, firm pressure and good enamel.

Pairing: Lamb

Points: 98, James Suckling

Format / ABV: 750 ml / 14.5%
