Sourced from our Family-owned vineyards in the Barolo region in Serralunga d’Alba (Colombaro) and in Monforte d’Alba (Mosconi), in the Barbaresco region in Treiso (Bongiovanni) and also in the Langhe region in Sinio (Val di Croce, Bricco dello Stornello) and in Diano d’Alba (Carzello).
In stainless steel tanks. Long maceration on the skin for 20-25 days.
In big French oak “botti” for 12 months; a small amount in barriques as well.
The Barbera grapes from the Barolo and Barbaresco regions give to our classic Barbera a uniquely great structure, full body, complexity, smooth character, ripe fruit, spices and a very long life.
Ratings & Reviews:92 Points, #38 Top 100 Of 2021 - Wine Spectator
“This is bright and focused, exuding blackberry, black cherry and violet flavors. Balanced and firm on the long, fruit and earth-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2025. 6000 cases made, 3204 cases imported.” -BS (Dec 2021)
90 Points - Wine Advocate:
"The Pio Cesare 2019 Barbera d'Alba delivers nice richness and concentration, with fresh blueberry, blackberry and plum. I love that the Barbera grape can bring about all that black fruit intensity without feeling too heavy or concentrated. Indeed, this wine is remembered for its freshness above all else and its food-friendly versatility." - Monica Larner (Jun 2021)
