Pio Cesare has been producing wine for 135 years and through 5 generations in its ancient cellars in the historical centre of Alba, Piedmont. The cellars are built on the city’s 2,000-year-old ancient Roman walls. The family owns 70 hectares of vineyards, featuring high-quality hillside exposures, with parcels dotted around multiple communes of Barolo and Barbaresco.
100% Nebbiolo. The sources of the grapes, enriched by a small proportion of Nebbiolo from the Barbaresco and Barolo region, provide body, structure and a long ageing potential. The fruit is intense and ripe but at the same time fresh with very sweet tannins. Nice fragrance and longevity. Vinified in stainless steel with maceration for 20 days. It was aged for 24 months in oak, with a small portion in barriques.
