    Pio Cesare Barolo 2017, a red wine, uses the Nebbiolo grapes grown in Barolo region in Piedmont. The wine has 14.50% ABV. This wine is a great example of classic Barolo wine. It offers excellent structure, harmony, elegance. Soft tannins and balanced fruit. Approachable, but with a very long ageing potential.

    4 reviews for Pio Cesare Barolo 2017

    1. WE

      Aromas of dark-skinned berry, underbrush and oak-driven spice mingle with camphor. On the full-bodied palate, notes of licorice and espresso accent a core of juicy black cherry before an almost salty close. Firm, fine-grained tannins provide ample support.

    2. WA

      This is the wine to buy in commemoration of the 140th anniversary (1881-2021) of the historic house of Pio Cesare. The most traditional and classic of the wines in this important portfolio, the 2017 Barolo is packaged in a retro label that speaks to all the grandeur of this important Italian wine appellation. The wine imparts delicate and fine tones of wild fruit, cassis, tar, smoke and crushed rose. The wine is buttoned up and straitlaced, especially now in its youth.

    3. DEC

      This year’s releases are poignant as Pio Boffa recently passed away. This is the estate’s classic Barolo, produced with Nebbiolo grapes located in the top plots across different communes since 1881. The wine is floral, focused on violet and rose, with a blood orange touch, yet a darker fruit and chocolatey flavour. Firm, extracted and rugged at present, with a good but austere finish, it will age gracefully. 

    4. JS

      Plenty of blackberry and black cherry on the nose with violet and lavender undertones. Full-bodied with powerful tannins that flow across the palate. Ever enveloping and imposing, yet polished and impressive. Drink after 2024.
