Shanghai | New 95+ Italian Wine from Pio Cesare Available Now for Pre-Order

Exciting news for China winelovers – we’re announcing the arrival of two uniquely acclaimed bottles. We’ve got a couple of amazing Italian wines ready to land on the BottlesXO app in very limited quantity – and if you want to grab a bottle or two, you have a chance to pre-order them. Read on for more info on that.

Both bottles, Barolo wines with 95+ ratings from James Suckling and produced by legendary Italian winery Pio Cesare, are seriously special. Bottled five years ago, these wines are great to drink now on special occasions, but will definitely benefit from years of aging too. You might need to snap them up quickly, but there’s no need to rush once they’re safely in your cellar.

An exquisite, incredible Barolo. An Italian red wine with great structure, soft tannins and notes of ripe fruit and tobacco.

What the critics say:

“Extremely complex and showing the terroir of Serralunga with rose stems, wet earth, strawberries and mushrooms. Orange peel to boot. Full to medium body, ultra-fine tannins and bright acidity. Fascinating character that takes everything from the aromas. Light chewy on the finish. Expanding. Needs time to soften with bottle age. Better in 2021.”

– James Suckling

“Starts out with breadth and depth to the cherry, earth, leather, tar and leafy flavors, turning more focused as the tightly wound structure emerges. The kaleidoscopic finish goes on and on. Best from 2023 through 2043.”

– Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

Grapes:
100% Nebbiolo

Aging:
Oak, 30 months

A structured, harmonious and elegant red wine with soft tannins and balanced flavors of red fruit. Perfect for ageing.

What the critics say:

“The aroma to this are really impressive with crushed berries, dried flowers, walnuts and roses. Metamorphoses all the time. Full to medium body, characterized by a fantastic mouthfeel of ripe and round tannins that are always polished and beautiful. Magnificent harmony and purity. Drink or hold.”

– James Suckling

“This stunning wine opens with classic Nebbiolo aromas of underbrush, new leather, blue flower and dark berry along with a whiff of menthol. The radiant savory palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, clove and star anise framed in noble tannins and bright acidity. It’s tempting now but will continue to unwind and develop complexity for years to come. Drink 2023–2043.”

– Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast

Barolo

Barolo is a style of wine produced in Piedmont, Northwestern Italy. These historic wines are known for their aging potential, their rich tannins and the aromas of red fruit and roses. They’re serious wines.

The Pio Cesare winery

Pio Cesare was founded in 1881 by Cesare Pio. A well-travelled, entrepreneur, he was one of the first producers in Italy to recognise the potential of his home region of Alba in Piedmont, Italy. Over the years he used his passion for the terroir and its grapes to produce classic Barbera and Barolo wines that eventually became known as the area’s benchmark.

Five generations later, Cesare’s great-grandchildren continue to maintain the same dedication to quality and respect to tradition and terroir that drove him to establish the winery as one of Piedmont’s finest.
