(92+ points) The Pio Cesare 2015 Barbaresco offers a mid-weight approach and a solid core of fruit. That dark fruit center is surrounded by supple but delicate tones of exotic spice, smoke, tar, licorice and crushed stone. This is a fragrant and elegant expression that drinks beautifully straight out of the gate. This is a classic Barbaresco with an easy and approachable personality. Production is 25,000 bottles strong.- ML

The label states: 'Please don't call it "Regular"'. Pio Boffa doesn't see this as a 'basic' or 'regular' bottling of Barbaresco, rather referring to it as the estate's 'classic' bottling, as opposed to the single-vineyard... The label states: 'Please don't call it "Regular"'. Pio Boffa doesn't see this as a 'basic' or 'regular' bottling of Barbaresco, rather referring to it as the estate's 'classic' bottling, as opposed to the single-vineyard Il Bricco. And it's certainly 'classic' in outlook: the wine is matured for 24-30 months in mostly large oak botti, with a small amount in barrique. Sourced from four vineyards, three of which are in Treiso - the most elevated Barbaresco village - this has very fine, ripe yet fresh tannins with some gentle, savoury-edged red fruits. There's a slight strawberry plushness on the finish. A great match for lamb served pink.

Smooth and structured, the full-bodied palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, prune, coconut and a hint of roasted coffee bean framed in fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2023.
