Langhe Riesling Regalin

Pelissero is a family-run wine-growing estate located in the district of Treiso, in the heart of the zone of production of Barbaresco, Piedmont. The first bottles dated back to 1960 and were produced by Luigi Pelissero, whose work was followed by his son, Oenologist Giorgio. Giorgio is a one man-show sharing his busy schedule between the vineyards and cellar while in the meantime acting as the export/wine ambassador for 60 countries!  Pelissero has a meticulous, dynamic and organic viticulture / winemaking approach. The estate spreads over 40 hectares in Treiso, Barbaresco, Neive, Neviglie and Alba. Annual production is about 250,000 bottles.

 
100% riesling. The north facing Rigadin vineyards are located in Ferrere, Treiso.  The soils are sandy, loamy, light and permeable with a very deep limestone substrate. Hand harvested around mid-September. Light maceration at a low temperature to give more character and more complexity. Low temperature fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Aged on its lees in stainless steel tank for 8 months. 
 

Delicate aromas of honey, butter, flint, tobacco, tea with fruity notes of apricot, pear, citrus fruits such as lemon and grapefruit, and plants (thyme, sage, nettles and hawthorn). Structured taste with a good acidity and mineral notes typical of our sea-origin soils, building on the palate to a subtle, engaging finish.
