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.
80% barbera / 10% nebbiolo / 10% dolcetto grown in Treiso, Neive, Barbaresco and Alba. Barlet in Piedmontese dialect refers to a small tapped barrel the peasant would take in the fields with them for the day. Hand harvested. Vinified separately. Blending. No oak. This is a Vino Rosso senza denominazione di origine (vino di Tavola) and the vintage indication is not compulsory. However the information can be found on the back label under the lot number.
A delicious blend of Barbera, Nebbiolo, and Dolcetto that offers a real glimpse into the wonderful genuine wines of the Langhe region in Northern Italy. Bright red and dark fruit meet a savoury/gamey undercurrent and it's all wrapped up in a luscious and softly tannic texture. Acidity is quite pronounced which brings versatility when matching with food.
