IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

A classic Barbaresco vintage: elegant and velvety, with ripe and spicy fruit. Strong yet refined tannins. Good structure and concentration. A very long life ahead!

'Aromas of dried orange, berry and hazelnut with hints of dried flowers. Tar, too. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. The tannins are very fine and integrated. Chewy and encompassing flow across the palate. Very structured. Try after 2024.' – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 95/100

'Aromas of underbrush, ripe berry and tobacco mingle with balsamic notes of camphor. Full-bodied, with depth and weightless elegance, the taut palate features dried cherry, blood orange, licorice and graphite alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2025–2037.' – Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, 94/100

'The 2017 Barbaresco Pio is dark, fleshy and intensely spiced, all of which make it quite appealing. I would give the tannins time to soften, but there is enough fleshiness to allow the 2017 to drink well for a number of years. Bright red-toned fruit, cinnamon, blood orange, rose petal and mint are all laced into the super-classic Nebbiolo finish. Drink 2023-2034.' – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 93/100

'The Pio Cesare 2017 Barbaresco is subtle and fine in personality, yet there is plenty of Nebbiolo elegance and complexity. Past vintages of this wine have shown enormous consistency when it come to their inner finesse, and this hot, more challenging vintage is no different. That's quite an accomplishment on its own. Tart cherry and cassis segue to spice, campfire ash, tobacco and dried lavender flower. Perhaps the tannic power of the wine is more robust but not by too much. Drink 2023-2037.' – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 92/100

'2017 was a hot, dry summer with minimal rainfall until August. Green harvests were essential to produce balanced wines. Maceration temperature and length of time were also reduced in response to the conditions. A blend of four vineyards, including Il Bricco and other nearby sites in Treiso, this displays aromas of tobacco, leather, damp earth and delicate hedgerow berries. It has a good concentration of red berries in the mouth, with balancing acidity. Fine but structured tannins emerge on a sweet strawberry mid-palate along with some peppery spice, leading to a long, minty finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2031.' – James Button, Decanter, 91/100

'Spicy, with a hint of toasty oak, this red also evokes floral, berry, iron and menthol flavors. Solid tannins lend grip on the finish, yet are never overbearing. Shows fine balance and length. Best from 2024 through 2040.' – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 91/100
