The Pio Cesare estate has a long and rich family history dating back to 1881 and, having been awarded 8 Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri Awards, they certainly are well respected in the world of wine – which these latest accolades can attest to.
In the recent Antonio Galloni issue of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, the popular US bimonthly guide to fine wine, some great reviews were published on various Pio Cesare wines with none earning less than 90 points.
The 2007 Barbaresco scored 92, being hailed as “a gorgeous, inviting wine”, while both the “powerful” 2007 Barbaresco Il Bricco and the “sweet and open” 2007 Barolo received 93 with impeccable reviews. The superb 2007 Barolo Ornato received an impressive 95. Described as a “striking” wine, Robert even exclaimed “this is one of the most polished wines I have ever tasted from Pio Cesare.”
But it isn’t just media overseas that have been recommending the beautiful Pio Cesare wines. Renowned Australian chef, Neil Perry, recently detailed one of his exquisite recipes in The Age in which he suggests the Pio Cesare Barbera d’Alba as the perfect complement to the meal. Describing the Barbera d”alba as “wonderful wine”, Neil Perry goes on to acknowledge Pio Cesare as “one of the region’s finest producers” – and as an estate from the popular Piedmont region in Italy, this is indeed high praise.
