2007 Pio Cesare Barolo

SKU #1132755 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Pio Cesare and the 2007 vintage marry beautifully to produce a layered, opulent, textured, rich wine that is bursting with zesty red fruit, sassy spice, leather and toasted espresso bean. What really sets this wine apart is the dense smoothness of its texture. Save this bottle in your cellar 10 years or more. Inner quote mark (9/2011)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Love the nose on this with nutmeg and other spices, not to mention the ripe fruits such as currants and plums. Full and wonderfully balanced with ultra-fine tannins and a bright finish. Bright and tannic. Delicious already. Needs time still. Three years. Inner quote mark (5/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Barolo is inviting, sweet and open, yet has plenty of underlying tannins to provide support. It shows terrific balance in a style that reconciles the traditionalist leanings of this bottling with the ripe quality of the year. Sweet hints of tobacco, spices, leather and herbs add complexity on the textured yet grippy finish. Pio Cesare's straight Barolo doesn't seem to get the attention or spotlight it deserves, but it has truly been one of Piedmont's under the radar jewels for some time. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red. Very closed but pure nose offers currant, marzipan, mocha and a whiff of truffle. Quite sweet on the front half and almost surprisingly round and opulent. Then turns more dry and classic toward the back, finishing with serious, dusty, fine-grained tannins. This will need at least a few years of patience. (ST) Inner quote mark (10/2011)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Spicy and bright with red fruit flavor, this is underlined by nebbiolo's sneaky tannins. They come on with an iron grip, then open to scents of roses. This is powered by alcohol, but well within the bounds of balance. Cellar it several years then decant for braised duck. Inner quote mark (12/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This round red is full of sweet cherry and plum flavors, with hints of licorice and spices. The richness is offset by dense tannins, and there's a touch of heat on the finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2011)
