Producer: Pio Cesare
The Pio Cesare winery was founded in 1881 by our great-grandfather Cesare Pio. He was one of the very first wine producers to believe in the great potential and quality of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera and in the other great wines of Piemonte. Cesare Pio in the second portion of 1800s, was among the very first winemakers to produce these wines with a philosophy that was dedicated to the terroir and the strictest quality of the wine.
For five generations, the Pio Cesare family has been producing traditional Piedmontese wines in its ancient cellars, located in the centre of the town of Alba.
Only 6,000 bottles of this wine were produced. This is a fantastic wine showing Nebbiolo at its best. It is elegant with firm tannins, cherry flavours with liquorice. Very long life, drinking 2019-2029.
