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. V oluptuous rich fruit texture, delightful aromas and aromatic complexity, ripe tannin and fresh acidity, more full bodied and intense than the 2010. James Suckling, 97 points tasted on April 13th, 2015 A complex and complete wine with black cherry, mushrooms, wet earth and plum. Full-bodied, yet so refined and caressing in texture. Wonderful length and beauty. You want to drink it now but it will give so much more in the future.

The Pio Cesare winery was founded in 1881 by 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. For five generations, the Pio Cesare family has been producing traditional Piemontese wines in its ancient cellars, located in the centre of the town of Alba. 15 days of skin contact in stainless steel temperature controlled fermenters. 18 months in French oak. 30 in mid toasted barriques and 70 in 20 to 50 hectoliters casks.
