This Barolo is made from grapes grown on Pio Cesare’s estate near Serralunga. Wines made in this region are said to be especially dense and powerful. This is a wine that is aged in an unusually high (70%) proportion of new oak barrels. That said the concentration of the flavours from the fruit and the aromatic intensity of the wine balances this oak influence and – if anything – makes it more approachable in its youth. This is an outstanding expression of Nebbiolo and can be drunk now or cellared for over a decade.
