Pio Cesare Barolo DOCG presented in 1.5 Litre Magnums.
“2010 is a classic Piemontese vintage producing wines rich in tannin, not dissimilar to 2008, it is a vintage that will certainly impress Barolo lovers”, says Pio Boffa of Pio Cesare. In contrast to 2009, the wines are richer and more structured with more ageing potential.
The grapes for ‘Classic’ Pio Cesare Barolo DOCG are grown in four vineyards belonging to the Pio Cesare family in four of the Barolo communes; Serralunga d’Alba (Ornato), La Morra (Roncaglie), Grinzane Cavour (Gustava) and Barolo-Novello (Ravera). A portion of the grapes come from other exclusive vineyards owned by growers, who have been providing grapes to the Pio Cesare family for generations. Grapes are hand-picked, gently pressed and fermented at 25° to 26°C. Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks, with skin contact for 20-25 days. The wine is then aged in mid-toasted French oak for three years with 70% in 20-50 hectolitre casks and 30% in barriques.
