Pio Cesare Barolo D.O.C.G. 2008
A classic barolo. Excellent structure and harmony, mild tannins, and balanced fruit. It is immediately approachable, but it has a very long aging potential.
100% Nebbiolo. The Pio Cesare winery, near Alba in Italy's Piedmont, was founded by its namesake in 1881. 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. Great-grandson Pio Boffa continues the tradition of this internationally respected winery by emphasizing viticulture and innovative winemaking. Contemporary techniques applied to Piedmont's noble grape varietals result in wines of great character and distinction.
