    Barbaresco DOCG 2016

    Bright and radiant, with a lot of Nebbiolo character, it is a successful interpretation of the balanced vintage. On the nose sweet red cherries, tobacco, mint, anise and white pepper. Medium-bodied and graceful on the palate with a good balance of perfume, acidity and structure. With further bottle age it looks forward to a great evolution. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Bright, brightening ruby garnet. Opens on the nose with notes of pomegranate and roses, some pickled cherry, plus truffle. Shows fine-meshed, quite grippy tannin on the palate, deep structure, builds in layers, final long with firm pressure, has bite." Falstaff

    "The Pio Cesare 2016 Barbaresco offers a subtle approach to Nebbiolo with a silky and graceful presence. The bouquet shows a nice and fanciful embroidery of wild berries, blue flowers and white licorice. Yes, these are the standard Nebbiolo traits, and this classic wine strives to deliver nothing more and nothing less than varietal purity. Any signs of the oak have been neatly folded into the delicate fiber of this Barbaresco. The wine represents a blend of fruit from Cascina Il Bricco, San Stefanetto, Bongiovanni and Rocche di Massalupo." Robert Parker

    "Yum. Very fine tannins with a dusty texture. Plenty of subtle ripe strawberries, orange peel and cedar. It’s medium-bodied with a fresh, fruity finish. Tight and beautiful. Give it a year or two to open, but already a beauty." James Suckling

    "Pio Cesare’s 2016 Barbaresco is, quite simply, everything Barbaresco should be. Medium in body and translucent, with a firm backbone of youthful Nebbiolo tannin, the 2016 is captivating from the very first taste. Rose petal, lavender, mint, blood orange and red berry fruit open effortlessly. This is textbook Barbaresco. I loved it." Vinous
