Pio Cesare have been making wines in their ancient cellars in central Alba for 141 years, from their vineyards based primarily in Barolo and Barbaresco. Today, fifth generation Federica Boffa with her cousin Cesare Benvenuto lead this prestigious estate. The winegrowing is sustainable and the winemaking largely traditional resulting in wines of great elegance, structure and purity.
Deep dark red black colour with a bright purple red hue. Freshly crushed blackberry, liquorice and dark plum scents intermix with vanillin earth and spice notes. Juicy dark cherry and liquorice fruits have an earthy back drop of blackberry and vanillin spice. Dry, slightly inky finish with bright fresh acidity, grainy tannins and an energetically savoury conclusion.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Alc. 14.5%
