Pio Cesare – Barolo 2018


Frustrated by the fact that non-single vineyard Barolos are often described as “regular”, Pio Cesare decided to take action and defend the pride and joy of their region’s most celebrated wine by printing their request on the label: “Please, don’t call it regular”.

Pio Cesare Barolo has extraordinary elegance, complexity and character. Silky and intense bouquet. Full body, great structure, right tannins, incredible ageing potential, precise and classic Nebbiolo style. The wine has sweet and very elegant tannins. It still needs one year in oak for the best maturation.

Established in 1881, Pio Cesare, now run by fifth generation Pio Boffa, was one of the very first producers to believe in the potential and quality of the great wines of Piemonte and to export to the UK. A ceaseless devotion to the individuality of each of the region’s wines informs Pio’s choices in the vineyards and cellar. He applies a ‘minimal intervention’ philosophy to wine making, creating wines that year after year, are ranked among the world’s best wines.

Food matches: Ideal with steak tartar, truffle, porcini dishes, duck, guinea fowl, veal, braised beef, cheese.

Serves at: 16-18°C
