Pio Cesare Langhe Nebbiolo DOC

2013

In a Nutshell

Elegant, early drinking style from this iconic Barolo producer.

Tasting Notes

Intense and ripe berry fruit perfumes and flavours, with rounded tannins and refreshing acidity giving structure. The wine is rich and full-bodied, with a hint of gentle toast on the finish. Elegant and fragrant, this wine is ideal for immediate consumption but has the complexity to age.

Production Notes

The grapes are hand-picked and gently pressed and fermented at 25 to 26°C. Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks, with skin contact for 12 days. The wine is then aged in medium-toasted French oak for 30 months: 20% in barriques, 80% in 20-50 hectolitre casks.

Nebbiolo

Producer - Pio Cesare

This historic family-owned estate is named after its founder Cesare Pio, who established the business in 1881. It is based in Alba in the heart of Piemonte, nestled between the Alps and the Mediterranean sea. The surrounding hills are ideal for vine growing with unique micro-climates and varying exposures. The confluence of cold Alpine air with warm maritime moisture regularly creates a mist, or ‘nebbia’, over the foothills, giving name to Nebbiolo, the great red variety of the region.
