Pio Cesare Barolo Ornato 2007

Pio Cesare Barolo Ornato 1.50L 2007          
Sku: 1695063*

Ornato is the name of the estate vineyard owned by the family in Serralunga d’Alba. From the grapes of this estate, they have always produced the classical Barolo, but in 1985 they decided to select a small quantity of Nebbiolo from two vines to create a Barolo that reflects the marvelous characteristics of the Serralunga soil. The characteristics of the soil, the microclimate and favourable exposure, allows the grapes to become extremely rich. The first Barolo "Ornato” was produced in 1991, to celebrate the estate`s 110th anniversary. Since then, it is only produced in outstanding years.

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

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.-BS

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. -- Stephen Tanzer

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.
