Description of Pio Cesare Barolo 2014
Pio Cesare Barolo 2014 (Nebbiolo)
6 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
Barolo is the most fascinating of all Pio Cesare wines and has an air of aristocracy and a dominant personality. However, the Barolo is rich in hidden nuances enjoyed by those who take the time to savor the wine. Pio Cesare Barolo is intentionally "traditional" austere and important, and a wine that approached carefully.
The bright color is an intense garnet with orange reflections. The bouquet is ethereal, with hints of violets, blackberry jam, licorice and cloves. The palate is dry and austere, with long tannins. The wine ends with a concentrated long finish accompanied by a lingering touch of almonds.
"Extremely attractive blackberry aromas, fresh mushrooms and mahogany. Full-bodied, with lovely fruit, soft tannins and a long finish. Chewable, but balanced and beautiful. It is based on the palate. Big and juicy. Best after 2010." 94 Points
How to serve
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 Barolo 2014
- 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.
