    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pio's Barbaresco has quiet class and grace with an elegant body. It is glossy garnet in color with light ruby shades. The bouquet is intense and fragrant, with a hint of violets, cinnamon and vanilla. The palate is dry, full and vigorous, with overtones of peach. The wine has a quiet yet graceful power.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Glorious aromas of coffee, vanilla and exotic spices mark the nose of this very impressive red. Strapping tannins are the backdrop for dense mineral, tar and leather flavors which carry over to the lingering finish. This is a wine built for the long haul. The tannins should start to be approachable in 2012 while the fruit density will carry it to 2020 and beyond.

    Bright and fruity, with plum, flowers and fresh mushroom on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft, round tannins and lots of stylish fruit. Pretty and refined. Has wonderful balance and richness. Best after 2010. 2,500 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2004 Barbaresco is a beautiful wine endowed with expressive aromatics and an attractive core of ripe red fruit. Subtle notes of spices, smoke, tar and licorice add complexity. The wine possesses outstanding length and refined tannins that will only become more elegant with further bottle age. The Barbaresco is made from various estate-owned vineyards in Treiso. Roughly 30% of the wine was aged in French oak, which gives this Barbaresco a slightly modern accent without compromising what is a mostly traditional interpretation of Nebbiolo. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2024.

    The Wine Advocate

    Good medium red with a hint of amber. Reticent but pure aromas of raspberry, tobacco, faded rose and marzipan. Dense, fat and creamy, with a downright liqueur-like sweetness to the pliant flavors of red fruits and truffle. Like the '03 version, this is a particularly mouthfilling Barbaresco, but this example is deeper and sexier. A wonderfully supple style.
    Range: 91-92
