Pio Cesare Barolo
The Nebbiolo grapes used to produce this Barolo come from Pio Cesare's family vineyards around the village of Serralunga d’Alba. Their Barolo has always been produced through careful blending of grapes from different vineyards. The grapes from Serralunga give a full body, the ones from Castiglione Falletto offer an ethereal and tempting nose, and those from Monforte provide class and a refined nature.
The colour is an intense glossy garnet, with orange reflections. The bouquet is ethereal, with hints of violets, blackberry jam, liquorice and cloves. The palate is dry and austere, with a lingering hint of almonds.
