Winemaker's Notes

This classic Barolo is a blend of four different prime sites in the Barolo zone, each contributing its unique qualities to the final blend. Most come from the Ornato vineyard, which contributes about 65% of the final blend. Pio Cesare owns a vineyard in Grinzane Cavour, which contributes bouquet, while the family also receives grapes from growers in Monforte d'Alba (for depth and suppleness) and Castiglione Falletto (for finesse).

It is the contributing factor of these sites that ultimately allow Pio to craft a Barolo that maintains a reputation of excellence.
