The Barbaresco wine from Pio Cesare has always been produced from grapes coming from different locations within 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.
Following manual harvesting of the grapes vinification took place in stainless steel tanks with skin contact for 25-30 days. Following melolactic fermentation the wine was aged in large oak “botti” for about 30 months with a small amount in French barriques before assembly and bottling.

Bouquet: The nose scents of red ripe fruit and jade, with purple floral notes and spicy notes of vanilla, nutmeg and tobacco.
