Pio Cesare Barolo 2008

Pio Cesare Barolo 750ml 2008     
Sku: 19483

The nebbiolo grapes used to produce the classical Barolo come from family vineyards around the village of Serralunga dí Alba. This Barolo is produced through careful blending of grapes from different vineyards. Pio believes that the union of grapes from different vineyards makes their Barolo unique. The grapes from Serralunga give a full body, the ones from Castiglion Falletto offer an ethereal and tempting nose, and those from Monforte provide class and a refined nature. This produces a unique and inimitable wine. The grapes are soft pressed and fermented at 25 to 26 degrees, in contact with the skins for 20 to 25 days. There is a long maturation in Slovenian oak, well beyond the terms imposed by the D.O.C.

Tasting notes
Color: Glossy garnet red, with faint, vanished orange reflections Nose: Elegant scents of blackberry jam and spices. Palate: Dry, and generous with a clear background of roasted almonds.

Sweet rosemary, licorice and red berries waft from the glass in Pio Cesareís 2008 Barolo. This is a fairly approachable vintage for the estateís Barolo. Firm, young Nebbiolo tannins frame the long finish. The aromas and flavors are somewhat forward, and I donít 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. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2020. ”
