Barolo 2012 Pio Cesare
Year after year, Pio Cesare Barolos are ranked among the world's best. The Pio Cesare family takes a modern approach to quality winemaking. Their unique method stresses minimal intervention to produce wines of particularly supple flavor expression. The Nebbiolo grapes used to produce Pio’s Barolo comes from the family vineyards around the village of Serralunga d’Alba. These grapes account for about 70% of production, with additional grapes sourced from the most favorable areas in Castiglione Falletto and Monforte, the same stock they have used for the last hundred years. The grapes from Serralunga give a full body, those from Castiglione Falletto offer an ethereal and tempting nose, and the fruits from Monforte provide class and a refined nature. Aged in 30% new French oak for 2 years the wine is then put in 50% new Slavonian oak for another 3 years. The Wine Advocate scored it 94 points saying "Pio Cesare has produced a small miracle with the 2012 Barolo. In a vintage that saw many nondescript wines, 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 should evolve slowly over the next ten years." and James Suckling scored it 95 saying "This is a young Barolo that builds on the palate with super silky tannins and fantastic pure and delicious fruit. Hints of hazelnut, plum and dark berry character. Full and polished tannins. Better in 2019 but so delicious now."
