This is very spicy and fruity one with perfumed and bright aromas. Leather, too. Medium-bodied, refined and layered with beautiful ripe tannins. Fine, polished texture with berry and walnut undertones. Drink or hold.
With robust fruit exclusively sourced from Serralunga d'Alba, the 2014 Barolo Ornato is a bold and loosely knit red wine. Keeping in line with the characteristics of this celebrated vineyard site, the wine offers extra density, softness and texture. The results are plump with ripe fruit, spice and Spanish cedar. The finish is smooth and silky. This vintage of Pio Cesare's single-vineyard Barolo is better consumed in the near and medium term. The wine is aged in botte grande and barrique. Some 10,000 bottles were made.
Tightly wound, offering cherry, plum, wild herb, tar and spice flavors matched to a tensile frame. More savory than fruity, with the finish compact and unyielding today. Best from 2022 through 2035. 700 cases made.
