    Barolo DOCG 2016 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    Pio Cesare's Barolo is made from grapes from vineyards in Serralunga, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra and Novello. Ruby garnet with light red rim. On the nose tea, rose petals, some liquorice, plus plums and small red berries. Fleshy, fruity and dense on the palate, beautiful raspberry and blackberry tones, well-built tannin with a creamy core, very long and engaging. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sparkling, rich garnet red. Appealing and inviting nose, first some leather and tobacco, then after cranberries, ripe cherries and blackberries, playful and multilayered. Sturdy and firm on the palate, opens with plenty of tightly woven tannin, very powerful, pressure and rich bite on the back end, laid out for a long life." Falstaff

    "Widely sourced, from family-owned vineyards in Novello and Grinzane Cavour as well as more celebrated villages, this Barolo shows admirable opulence on the nose, with sweet cherry fruit but no trace of jamminess. Firm and spicy, it displays excellent vigour and presence and good acidity gives persistence and refinement. Long." Decanter

    "The 2016 Barolo is a terrific example of the year. Bright acids and veins of supporting tannins give the 2016 its super-classic feel. Sweet red cherry fruit, chalk, mint, dried flowers, cedar, anise and sweet pipe tobacco all grace this translucent, mid-weight Barolo. Best of all, the 2016 can be enjoyed with just a few more years in bottle. It is a gorgeous wine and a good relative value within Barolo." Vinous

    "Pretty sweetness and ripeness to this with cherries, dried strawberries and chocolate. It’s full-bodied with round, firm tannins. Very long and intense. A little tight now. Complex and subtle at this stage. Give it two or three years to come around." James Suckling

    "Traditionalists happily fall back to this wine from Pio Cesare. This historic winery, now in its fifth generation and located within the city limits of Alba, takes care to shape a classic interpretation without too many extra bells or whistles. The fact that Pio Cesare now has the flashier Barolo Ornato and the newly created Barolo Mosconi, only gives more importance to this wine. The Pio Cesare 2016 Barolo offers deep, dark fruit with a mingling of spice, smoke, tar and smoke. This wine represents a blend of fruit from five comuni, or villages: Cascina Ornato, La Serra and Briccolina in Serralunga d'Alba; Gustava and Garretti in Grinzane Cavour; Roncaglie in La Morra; Ravera in Novello; and starting with the 2015 vintage, Mosconi in Monforte d’Alba." Robert Parker

    "Enticingly fragrant, this wine offers alluring scents of iris, rose, perfumed berry and wild herb. It's full bodied and elegant, delivering crushed raspberry, juicy Marasca cherry, star anise and orange zest set against a backbone of taut, fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity keeps it balanced and lends intensity." Wine Enthusiast
