Pio Cesare, established in 1882, was one of the very first producers to believe in the potential and quality of the great wines of Piemonte and to export to the UK.The winery is now run by fifth generation Pio Boffa, whose ceaseless devotion to the terroir and wines of the Barolo region guides his choices from the vineyards to the cellar. He applies a ‘minimal intervention’ philosophy to wine making, creating wines that are ranked among the world’s best wines year after year.
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.
“This is a young Barolo that builds on the palate with super silky tannins and fantastic pure and delicious fruit. Hints of hazelnut, plum and dark berry character. Full and polished tannins. Better in 2019 but so delicious now” James Suckling
