Winemaker Notes

This is a classic Barolo, with excellent structure and harmony, mild tannins and balanced fruit. It is immediately approachable, but it also has a very long ageing potential.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Pio Cesare is on a roll producing vintage after vintage of excellent Barolo. This shows enormous intensity and beauty with perfumed layers of pressed flower, wild berry, vanilla and spice. It boasts a dark, bold appearance and tight tannins that are supported by an excellent quality of fruit. Drink after 2018.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sweet rosemary, licorice and red berries waft from the glass in Pio Cesare's 2008 Barolo. This is a fairly approachable vintage for the estate's Barolo. Firm, young Nebbiolo tannins frame the long finish. The aromas and flavors are somewhat forward, and I don’t see enough depth in the fruit to support long-term drinking, but the 2008 should provide plenty of enjoyment on the near and medium term.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A hard edge underlies this cherry-, strawberry- and herb-flavored red, which, though lean and tight, also shows balance, with a long, elegant finish. Best from 2015 through 2024.

Pio Cesare, Italy
Pio Cesare Winery Image

Pio Cesare has been producing wine for more than 100 years and through generations. The tradition began in 1881, when Pio Cesare started gathering grapes in his vineyards and purchasing those of some selected and reliable farmers in the hills of Barolo and Barbaresco districts.

At Pio Cesare, there has always been a conviction that great wine can come only from the finest grapes and the winery's output has always been limited through adherence to the highest standards. Pio Cesare limits its production by using only the most mature and healthy grapes. The ripening of the grapes is carefully monitored and the harvest is rigidly controlled with each grape selected by hand.

Today, the estate is managed by Pio Boffa, great-grandson of Pio Cesare. Under his stewardship, the wines of Pio Cesare have become famous throughout the world. Great strides have been made in quality, and single vineyard offerings have dazzled the wine press.
