Description

Pio Cesare have been making wines in their ancient cellars in central Alba for 141 years, from their vineyards based primarily in Barolo and Barbaresco. Today, fifth generation Federica Boffa with her cousin Cesare Benvenuto lead this prestigious estate, after the untimely passing of Pio Boffa in 2021 after 40 years as the face of Pio Cesare. The winegrowing is sustainable and the winemaking largely traditional resulting in wines of great elegance, structure and purity.

Derived from their family-owned vineyards in Treiso (Il Bricco, San Stefanetto, and Bongiovanni) and in San Rocco Seno d’Elvio (Rocche di Massalupo), this wine has perpetually been a product of their family. The grapes are meticulously sourced from various sites encompassed by the Barbaresco appellation. This embodies the age-old "formula" embraced by the historic Barbaresco families—a technique designed to meld and harmonize the distinctive traits inherent to the diverse vineyards and terroirs within the expanse of the Barbaresco region.

A very classical style Barbaresco: elegance and velvety, with ripe and spicy fruit. Strong tannins, but elegant. Good structure and concentration. Very long life. Barbaresco is a great wine it should not be described as a “basic” or “regular” Barbaresco, simply because it does not have any additional indication on the label.
