Bottle of Barbera d'Alba, 1967 - Pio Cesare
Bottle of Barbera d'Alba, 1967 - Pio Cesare.
Vintage wine is not to be considered as a product to be tasted, but as an emotion to give that brings with it the memories of a past time.
It is first and foremost a collector's work, with high antiques value and only later, if you are lucky, a wine to taste.
Barbera d'Alba, like all vintage wines in general, is subject to a multitude of variables that condition aging with the passing of time so as not to guarantee its drinkability, the only way to understand if it is still drinkable is to uncork it.
Pio Cesare has been producing wines for 135 years and through five generations in its ancient cellars in the center of the town of Alba. His son, Giuseppe Pio, the second generation, found himself with a thriving winery at the turn of the century. He carried on his father’s passion and invested in expansion of the cellars and the trade, making Pio Cesare a benchmark brand for the wines of the region. Pio Boffa, the fourth generation, leads and directs the company today.
