'The Pio Cesare 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo gives us an easy and transparent view of this mighty grape from Piedmont. Rather than complexity, the wine delivers primary freshness. Rather than longevity, you get a wine that tastes great straight out of the gate. Aromas of cherry, blackberry and lilac are stacked neatly together. It offers simplicity and harmony. This wine makes a natural partner for your favorite pasta recipes. Drink 2021-2024.' – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 90/100

'Quite dark in the glass, this Nebbiolo is dominated by graphite toastiness and ripe cherry. Despite a slightly dusty texture the wine is velvety and ripe, refreshing and full bodied. Macerated cherries are accompanied by violet and rose. The selection of the grapes is mostly from La Morra and Serralunga within Barolo, as well as San Rocco Seno D’Elvio in Barbaresco, Sinio and Diano d’Alba. Aged in oak for 24 months with a small proportion of barriques, this has the potential to be a serious example of Langhe Nebbiolo but it needs a bit more ageing for better oak integration. Drinking Window 2021 - 2031.' – Aldo Fiordelli, Decanter, 89/100

'A bright, fruity style, this offers cherry, strawberry, floral and earth notes, backed by moderate, dusty tannins. Well balanced overall. Drink now.' – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 89/100

Producer information The historic family-owned Pio Cesare estate has been producing wine for 135 years, through 5 generations, in their ancient cellars in Alba. The cellars are built on the city’s 2,000-year-old ancient Roman walls. The family owns 70 hectares of vineyards, featuring high-quality hillside exposures, with parcels dotted around multiple communes of Barolo and Barbaresco. A visionary for quality, the late Pio Boffa transformed the company during his four decades as the head of the family business. Known to travel 200 days of the year, Pio was a global standard-bearer for Piedmont's wines. ‘I will carry on his legacy now with even more strength and energy and commitment,’ his daughter Federica Boffa promises.
