    • "Piodilei" Chardonnay Langhe DOC 2017

      “Piodilei” Chardonnay Langhe DOC 2017

      Piodilei is the white flagship of the winery since 1985. The grapes come from the single vineyard Il Bricco, from which the grapes of the Barbaresco Crus, which is awarded every year, also come. From the very beginning, Pio's aim has been to use this white to create a wine that has the same complexity and storage potential as the great red wines of this region.

      Sparkling straw yellow. Complex bouquet of herbal spice, tender buttery notes, flint, pear and sweet yellow fruit. In the glass of impressive freshness with a finely integrated oak spice and notes of pineapple and chestnut. A fresh, complex and serious white wine that is unrivalled in the region. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling straw yellow with shades of green. Finely drawn nose with notes of fresh pineapple and grapefruit, with lime blossom and damp stones in the background. Unfolds on the palate with very good weight, creamy and round, but also has well-integrated acidity, giving the wine tension, balanced and long, with a banana aftertaste." Falstaff

      "The Pio Cesare 2017 Langhe Chardonnay Piodilei opens to a few whiffs of smoke and flint before you get to the orchard and passion fruits that are at the core of this pretty white wine. The wine is oak fermented, and you get hints of toasted almond, honey and ripe melon along the way. Despite the hot vintage, the style of this wine embraces freshness, lightness and elegance. A pair with sea urchin is just what I was thinking." Robert Parker

      "This is a layered and beautiful chardonnay with wonderful character. Full-bodied, deep and focused. Love the phenolic tension and seriousness. Cooked apples and pineapples and hints of vanilla and cream." James Suckling

    • Vermouth di Torino <br>in Gift Box

      Vermouth di Torino · in Gift Box

      From the very beginning, Pio Cesare produced limited quantities of Barolo Chinato and Vermouth, strictly following a family recipe handed down from his grandfather. At the beginning of the 1950s, however, production was discontinued as tastes and preferences changed.

      In recent years, it has been noticed that Piedmont lovers are increasingly longing for traditional character, strong personality and great individuality in aromatic wines and wine-based aperitifs. As a result, the decision was taken to produce small quantities of Barolo Chinato and Vermouth again, again strictly according to a secret family recipe, kept under lock and key for many years under the careful supervision of the grandmother, granddaughter of the founder.

      In addition to absinthe, which is essential for the production of a good wormwood, it is refined with a mixture of 26 aromatic herbs such as marjoram leaves, gentian roots, orange zest and others, which are dosed together strictly according to the family recipe that has been handed down. Various white wines from the winery are added, including Moscato d'Asti. After 15 days of maceration, the wormwood obtained is aged in oak barrels for at least 4 months. Finally, the recipe is rounded off with the addition of caramelized sugar, which gives this vermouth its bright colour and unmistakable aroma and taste.

      Connoisseurs enjoy it in the old "Piedmontese style": no ice, just a small slice of lemon peel. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Thanks to its funky retro packaging, this is one of the most exciting projects to come out of downtown Alba in a very long time. The Pio Cesare NV Vermouth di Torino sees a base of Chardonnay enhanced with Moscato. (Like the estate's other fortified wine, the Barolo Chinato, only 1,000 bottles are released per year.) The Vermouth pours forth from the bottle with an orange or copper color. It is thick and viscous, taking its time as it swirls around the bowl of my glass. The bouquet reveals mountain herb and medicinal tones, with lots of mint and spearmint. There is some blood orange, citrus, licorice, camphor ash, vanilla and spice. This Vermouth is all fun and charm." Robert Parker

      Barbaresco DOCG 2014

      In the nose and on the palate, bright red cherries, plums and spices blend with a potpourri of orange peels, tobacco and leather. The 2014 vintage surprises us with its great balance. Tight tannins support the very Nebbiolo typical overall impression - very successful! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Pio Cesare's 2014 Barbaresco is bright, articulate and very attractive. Hints of citrus, wild flowers and white pepper add aromatic lift to this nuanced, mid-weight Barbaresco. The 2014 is a bit lithe in feel, but it has enough persistence to drink well for another decade or so." Antonio Galloni

      "Strains of sweet vanilla shine through the cherry, menthol and iron flavors in this austere, tensile red. Needs time for the fruit to assert itself, yet the aftertaste finds equilibrium." Wine Spectator

      "Lots of rose petals and dried fruit with hints of sliced oranges on the nose. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Linear and pretty." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Pio Cesare
    Piedmont
    Pio Cesare

    Pio Cesare was one of the first winemakers to believe in the high quality and potential of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera and other Piedmontese wines. The world-famous traditional house he founded under his own name in the 19th century still has its headquarters in the old town of Alba today. The walls of the cellars date back to the Roman Empire. Today, the fifth generation of the family owns the wine house managed by Pio Cesares, Pio Boffa, the great-grandson of Pio Cesares. The quality products of the Langhe-based company can be found in restaurants and hotels all over the world, are highly appreciated by wine connoisseurs and collectors and are therefore worthy ambassadors of their north-western Italian cultivation zone. The range includes Barolo and Barbaresco site wines as well as other important red and white wines from Lower Piedmont.

    In addition to working in its own vineyards in the Barolo area in Serralunga d'Alba, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra and Barolo and Novello, in the Barbaresco areas of Treiso and other selected production areas in Diano d'Alba, Sinio and Trezzo Tinella, Pio Cesare has long-standing business relationships with local farmers. Friends of the winegrowers have been selling part of their grape harvest to the family for many generations. In the vineyards of Pio Cesare, Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto thrive alongside other vines, most of which are native to the area.

    In the winery, which has been extended by a new fermentation and maturation cellar and a new bottling plant, strictly selected grapes are turned into balanced wines with a classic character and a very high ageing potential. One of the top wines is Barolo Ornato, which comes from a vineyard of the same name in Serralunga d'Alba was born. Also the Barbera, pressed in the old town of Alba, inspires wine lovers from year to year. Only the finest wines of the house are aged in new barriques. The ruby red Barolo and Barbaresco have fine oak notes at a young age. Concessions to a broad public taste are sought in vain by connoisseurs of fine wines in Pio Cesare's battery of sixteen wines - and this will certainly remain so. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Respect for the terroir and the microclimate are the basis of a philosophy that aims to reproduce the same wine style today as then, albeit with the most modern cellar technology."Gambero Rosso
