2014 Barolo, Pio Cesare, Piedmont

The 2014 Barolo from Pio Cesare is a wonderful expression of the Nebbiolo grape. Silky and fine, with notes of fresh and dried fruit, pot pourri, and wild violets, with just a hint of graphite on the finish, it's a wine of complexity and depth, but also of excellent elegance. One of the finest wines of the vintage.

TASTING NOTES

Bright and complex with licorice, tar and rose petals. Hints of plums, too. Medium to full body and chewy, round tannins. Plenty of dried meat, spices and berries. A pretty finish. Shows intensity for the vintage. Already very pretty but drink in 2020.
