PIO CESARE BARBARESCO 2015


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.

This shows phenomenal structure to it with fantastic linear tannins that take this wine deep and long on the palate. It’s buttressed by a beautiful balance of ripe fruit characterized by strawberry and orange-peel undertones. Chewy and focused. Needs four or five years to soften and show its true greatness. Available in February 2019. Try in 2022.

Rich and spicy, featuring cherry, plum and tar flavors, accented by vanilla and toasty oak notes. Firm and compact, yet balanced, this will need time for all the components to harmonize and find equilibrium. Best from 2021 through 2038.

From the Bricco di Treiso MGA, the 2015 Barbaresco Il Bricco is a rich and nicely layered red wine that shows the warm characteristics of the vintage with dark berry fruit, cherry and light touches of exotic spice. I paired this wine with lightly aged salami that worked beautifully, thanks to the oily nature of the food and the fresh nature of the wine.

The Bricco vineyard in Treiso is known for producing solid, ageworthy wines. Combined with Pio Cesare's use of stainless steel for vinification and then botti and barrique for maturation, the result is an elegant, fresh yet structured wine with hidden power. The broad palate has a chocolate edge to it, with oak astringency and plummy hedgerow fruit in tow. The fine, delicate tannins give grip but there's a lovely juicy character just waiting to break out. If you need to drink this right away it deserves decanting. Approximately 5,000 bottles produced. Drinking Window 2019 - 2045

Subtle aromas of coconut and exotic spice mingle with iris and menthol. The full-bodied palate offers mature cherry, espresso and star anise framed in close-grained tannins. Best 2021–2027.
