2012 Pio Cesare Barolo
Yep, we're also scratching our heads at how great this price is! There simply isn't a better deal going right now in fruit-driven, traditional Barolo! "Pio Cesare has produced a small miracle with the 2012 Barolo... this Nebbiolo is bursting with energy and personality. The bouquet opens to an exciting sense of freshness with bright cherry and wild berry at the forefront. You also get balsam herb and mint, with cola and licorice in generous supply at the back." - The Wine Advocate Grab a case of this one!
Pio Cesare is one of those legendary names in Piedmont wine production, in part because they've been doing great work for so long. The venerable winery was founded in 1881 by Cesare Pio, Alba native and visionary who believed in the beauty of his homeland and its ability to express that glory through her wines. Now, five winegrowing generations later, the estate is as impressive as ever! When you get a producer of this caliber making wines in a near perfect vintage you know it is a safe bet. Pio Boffa is Pio Cesare's winemaker who is leading the modern winemaking charge - his wines are supple and rich in flavor without sacrificing their inherent individuality. The progressive winemaking style has tended towards shorter maceration of grapes, separate lot fermentations, judicious selection for barrel and large cask aging, and bottling schedules determined by the ideal structure of each wine.About Pio Cesare
