The grapes for the Pio Cesare Nebbiolo come exclusively from a selection of the family’s own vineyards in Diano d’Alba, La Morra, Collaretto, Lirano in Serralunga d’Alba and Rocche di Massalupo in San Rocco Seno d’Elvio. Fragrant ripe berry fruits and floral touches, with rounded and well integrated tannins that give this wine structure and longevity. The wine is rich, full-bodied, with a hint of gentle toasting.
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.
