Pio Cesare Barolo Ornato 2016
One of the greatest losses in the winemaking world was Pio Boffa. His winemaking style brought tradition and modernity together in one of the most heralded wine regions in the world. The wines he made were exactly as he was - powerful and elegant. There are only a few more vintages of the wines Pio made to be released, and this is one of them. The great Ornato is a vineyard in Serralunga - which on its own is a region of Barolo that conveys power. This 2016 is one for the cellar, or a long hang in a decanter for a while before it opens up. Your reward is fruit, fragrance, and a powerful punch! This is a true Barolo-lovers Barolo. The wines at the property continue to be in good hands with Pio's daughter Frederica at the helm. She spent years side-by-side with her father, so I couldn't be more excited to see what else is in store.
