    Winemaker's Notes:

    Barolo Ornato is produced in small quantities and only in excellent vintages. It is a very rich Barolo, dense, with supple tannins, full concentrated ripe fruit, elegant and powerful, with an extremely long life.

    Barolo Ornato is a single vineyard Barolo from very ripe grapes of three different plots of the famous Pio's Family-owned Ornato Estate in Serralunga d'Alba, one of the top vineyards in the whole Barolo area.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark color with lovely ruby red edge. What a nose of blackberries, blueberries and hazelnuts! Full bodied, with amazing tannins that are velvety and gorgeous. Oranges and plums in the aftertaste. This is the best Ornato ever? This is the new 1958. So hard not to drink but needs five years to show it all.

    The 2007 Barolo Ornato is striking. It shows marvelous delineation in it aromatics, tremendous breadth on the palate and fabulous balance. As always, the Ornato is a plush Barolo, with tons of Serralunga character and muscle. Rose petals, crushed flowers and spices add complexity to the dark fruit, while the French oak is very well-integrated. This is one of the most polished wines I have ever tasted from Pio Cesare. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

    The Wine Advocate

    Ornato is an opulent, modern expression of Barolo with lush oak tones that will require at least 10 more years to find perfect harmony. The 2007 vintage offers extra pulp and chewy cherry concentration that this wine upholds very successfully. You’ll love the plumpness and overall chocolaty richness available here.

    Quite closed on the nose, with the oak element in the foreground. Then hugely rich and opulent in the mouth, with an utterly smooth texture that goes beyond the other 2007s here. The concentration of plummy red fruit is accentuated by the wine's energy. Explosively long finish saturates the entire mouth with rich tannins.

    International Wine Cellar

    This modern-style red features aromas and flavors of sweet vanilla, coconut, blackberry and tar. The oak is a major component for now and needs time to yield to the underlying forces of the Nebbiolo and the terroir. Best from 2013 through 2030. 250 cases imported.
