'A dense and layered red with plums, dried orange and lemon peel and a long and flavorful finish. Beautiful. Such impressive layers and a fantastic finish. Very exciting. Love the length. Drink in 2020, but already beautiful.' – James Suckling, 95/100

'The Pio Cesare 2015 Barbaresco offers a mid-weight approach and a solid core of fruit. That dark fruit center is surrounded by supple but delicate tones of exotic spice, smoke, tar, licorice and crushed stone. This is a fragrant and elegant expression that drinks beautifully straight out of the gate. This is a classic Barbaresco with an easy and approachable personality. Drink 2020 - 2035.' – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 92+/100

'The label states: 'Please don't call it "Regular"'. Pio Boffa doesn't see this as a 'basic' or 'regular' bottling of Barbaresco, rather referring to it as the estate's 'classic' bottling, as opposed to the single-vineyard Il Bricco. And it's certainly 'classic' in outlook: the wine is matured for 24-30 months in mostly large oak botti, with a small amount in barrique. Sourced from four vineyards, three of which are in Treiso - the most elevated Barbaresco village - this has very fine, ripe yet fresh tannins with some gentle, savoury-edged red fruits. There's a slight strawberry plushness on the finish. A great match for lamb served pink. Drinking Window 2019 - 2032.' – Decanter, 91/100

'Offers ripe, almost jammy fruit, featuring cherry, raspberry, licorice and wild herb flavors. Balanced, with a firm underlying structure and fine, spicy length. Best from 2021 through 2036.' – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 91/100

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.
