PIO CESARE BARBARESCO 2017

Grape variety
Nebbiolo 100%

Vineyards
From our family vineyards in Treiso (Il Bricco, San Stefanetto and Bongiovanni) and in San Rocco Seno d'Elvio (Rocche di Massalupo). This wine has been always and traditionally produced by our Family from grapes coming from different locations within the Barbaresco appellation. This is the classic "formula" used by the ancient Barbaresco families to produce a wine which embraces and combines each of the unique characteristics of the different vineyards and terroirs of the Barbaresco area.

Vinification
In stainless steel tanks. Skin contact for 25-30 days

Ageing
In oak "botti" for about 30 months; a small amount in French barriques.

Notes
A very classical style Barbaresco: elegance and velvety, with ripe and spicy fruit. Strong tannins, but elegant. Good structure and concentration. Very long life. Barbaresco is a great wine-it should not be described as a "basic" or "regular" Barbaresco, simply because it does not have any additional indication on the label.

Critic's Reviews: 95 points - James Suckling
"Aromas of dried orange, berry and hazelnut with hints of dried flowers. Tar, too. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. The tannins are very fine and integrated. Chewy and encompassing flow across the palate. Very structured.">br>
92 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The Pio Cesare 2017 Barbaresco is subtle and fine in personality, yet there is plenty of Nebbiolo elegance and complexity. Past vintages of this wine have shown enormous consistency when it come to their inner finesse, and this hot, more challenging vintage is no different. That's quite an accomplishment on its own. Tart cherry and cassis segue to spice, campfire ash, tobacco and dried lavender flower. Perhaps the tannic power of the wine is more robust but not by too much."
