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.Giuseppe PioMore about the Winery
Reviews of Pio Cesare Barbera d'Alba 2016
- 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. Pio Cesare Barbera is a unique Barbera full and brave, yet soft and supple.
- Pio Cesare Barbera has an intense ruby colour with garnet reflections. The bouquet is distinguished and vital, with fresh, ripe fruit. The palate is clear and definite, with hints of ripe pulpy fruit, cherry, and notes of chocolate, frame with a long and pleasant finish.
- The grapes come from selected vineyards in the villages of Monforte and Castiglione Falletto and from grapes in Pio's vineyards in the villages of Serralunga and Treiso.
- The fruit undergoes a careful selection to eliminate all imperfect grapes. The vintage takes place around mid-October, just a little before that of Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo and Barbaresco.
- Fermentation takes place for 10 to 12 days at a temperature of 24-25 degrees.
- Ageing occurs for two years in French oak casks of various sizes (25 to 55 hl) and in a small French oak barrels.
