Pio Cesare Barolo 2019


Pio Cesare has been producing wine for more than 100 years and through generations. The tradition began in 1881, when Pio Cesare started gathering grapes in his vineyards and purchasing those of some selected and reliable farmers in the hills of Barolo and Barbaresco districts. It has for the last 25 years, been the gold standard when it came to special, ageworthy Barolo. Seeing their name on the label is like a guarantee.

The winery only sources their Barolo from finest grapes and the output has always been limited due to the highest standards. The show was run forever by the exceptional Pio Boffa, but tragically the winemaker passed away due to a battle with Covid-19 in 2021. The 2019 Barolo was the last Barolo he worked on and fittingly, it’s from a very special, very memorable vintage in 2019.

95 Points, Parker’s Wine Advocate
Pio Cesare does a great job with its classic 2019 Barolo (in production since 1881). The bottom of the front label reads “Barolo Pio” in memory of the legendary Pio Boffa. He was a wine entrepreneur who gained the immediate respect and love of all those who knew him. This is a large production with fruit sourced from across seven vineyards in five villages. Despite those ambitious numbers, the wine remains strictly focused on bright Nebbiolo fruit with red cassis and aniseed. The finish is smooth with tannins that elegantly dissolve over the palate.

94 Points, James Suckling
Lovely perfumes of flowers, fresh strawberries and raspberries follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate with fine tannins that run the length of the wine. Citrus and spice undertones. Finishes long and intense. Tannic finish.
