The Pio Cesare 2013 barolo offers all of the plentiful qualities that make this such a memorable vintage. because the growing season was slightly cooler compared to the two years preceding it, 2013 offers a great sense of freshness and brightness. Fruit was sourced from seven different vineyards sites (with much of coming from Serralunga d’Alba). Starting in 2015, Monforte d’Alba fruit will be added. The tannins are tightly integrated within the film fabric of the wine. Yet, the finish is round and supple. This Barolo offers characteristics aromas of wild berry, black truffle and cola. It is executed in a very traditional style with botte grande and a tiny part barrique to give the wine a tad more oxygen during its integration and aging process.
