Tasting Notes Pio Caesar Barolo Pio Cesare DOCG 2016
It presents itself visually of an intense garnet red, the nose is complex, austere and wide ranging from intense hints of ripe berries, hints of plum embellished with undergrowth and sweet spices and tobacco. On the palate it is enveloping with a very thick but silky tannic texture to which is counterbalanced by an important sour shoulder which gives great freshness and drinkability. Voluminous and harmonious finish with a slight note of medicinal herbs, of great persistence.
Vinification in steel with maceration on the skins for 25-30 days at rather high temperatures and aged in barrels for about 30 months and in small part in barriques.
Excellent aging potential.
