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.
The Barbera grapes grown in the Barolo region produce a finished wine with a full structure and plummy, spicy, complex flavours. Pio Cesare’s Barbera plots are found in south or south-east facing vineyards rooted in limestone, clay, and sandstone. The sun and warmth captured at these sites produces fruit with well-developed skin tannins, colour, and flavour compounds. You’ll find blackberries in the aroma and a hint of toasted tobacco. This is a Barbera with the potential for a long life.
