    Description

    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 the Piemonte region, nestled between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea. The surrounding hills provide a handful of ideal exposures for grape growing with unique micro-climates. The confluence of cold Alpine air with warm maritime moisture regularly creates a misty glow, or nebbia, over these foothills, hence Nebbiolo, the great red variety of the region.

    Grapes

    Chardonnay

    Viticulture

    Sourced from family owned vineyards in Treiso (II Bricco Estate), in Serralunga dAlba (Colombaro) and in Trezzo Tinella (Bossania).

    75% is fermented in stainless steel tanks and the remaining 25% in new French oak barriques.

    Tasting Notes

    Colour: A brilliant straw yellow.

    Nose: Buttery-lemony oak influenced nose.
