The Winery

Pio Cesare

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 Pio

Pio Cesare Barolo 2012

4 /5

- This is a classic Barolo, with excellent structure and harmony, mild tannins and balanced fruit.
- It is immediately approachable, but it also has a very long ageing potential.
- The grapes are sourced from family owned vineyards in Serralunga d'Alba (Ornato), Grinzane Cavour (Gustava), La Morra (Roncaglie) and Barolo-Novello (Ravera).
- The balance of the grapes comes from other exclusive vineyards owned by growers, who have been providing grapes to the Pio Cesare family for generations.
- Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks, with skin contact for about 20 days.
- The wine is aged in mid-toasted French oak for three years: 70 percent in 20 to 50 hectolitre casks; 30 percent in barriques.
