This is a classic Barolo, with excellent structure and harmony, mild tannins and balanced fruit.

It is immediately approachable, but it also has a very long ageing potential.

The grapes are sourced from family owned vineyards in Serralunga d'Alba (Ornato), Grinzane Cavour (Gustava), La Morra (Roncaglie) and Barolo-Novello (Ravera).

The balance of the grapes comes from other exclusive vineyards owned by growers, who have been providing grapes to the Pio Cesare family for generations.

Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks, with skin contact for about 20 days.

The wine is aged in mid-toasted French oak for three years: 70 percent in 20 to 50 hectolitre casks; 30 percent in barriques.
