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.
Viticulture Sourced from family-owned vineyards in Serralunga dAlba (Ornato), Grinzane Cavour (Gustava), La Morra (Roncaglie), Barolo-Novello(Ravera). The Balance of the grapes comes from other exclusive vineyards owned by growers who have been providing grapes to the Pio Family for generations.
Wine Making In stainless steel tanks. Skin contact for about 20 days.
Aged in mid toasted French oak for 3 years: 70% in 20 to 50 hectoliters casks; 30% in barriques.
Tasting Notes Nose: Ethereal, with hints of violets, blackberry jam, liquorice and cloves.
Palate: Dry and austere, with a lingering hint of almonds
Full Bodied Red
