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).

Wine Making

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.

Palate: Pronounced ripe fruit character on the palate. A lighter style of Chardonnay with a spicy citrus fruit finish.
