Tasting Notes For Pio Cesare Barbaresco 2018

Pio Cesare Barbaresco 2018 is an exceptional red wine that presents itself with a deep and alluring garnet color. The aromatic bouquet is a harmonious blend of red fruit notes, prominently featuring cherries and raspberries, complemented by subtle floral undertones that add a layer of complexity to the nose.

On the palate, this Barbaresco reveals its true character, offering a well-structured and full-bodied experience. The flavor profile showcases the vibrancy of red fruits, with cherries taking the lead, while intricate layers of spices and hints of earthiness contribute to the wine's depth.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 94:

Strawberries with notes of walnuts, asphalt and bark. Also dried flowers. Full-bodied with fine, racy tannins and a very long, beautiful finish. Fine tannins. Shows excellent length for the vintage.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 93:
Compared to the Ornato, the 2018 Barolo Mosconi (with fruit from Monforte d'Alba) shows a tighter and more compact quality with a direct, linear and powerful approach. The bouquet builds in vertical intensity, starting with tart fruit aromas and culminating with tar, rusted nail and camphor ash. That aromatic ascent comes at you quickly, and the wine ultimately settles on a very wide, all-encompassing performance.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 92:
Pio Cesare stands out for its classics, and this wine is one of them. The 2018 Barbaresco (released a year later than its competitors) offers a light ripeness of candied raspberry with lilac, tarry smoke, cedar and spice. The mouthfeel is silky smooth with gently integrated tannins.
