Barbaresco Vanotu

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% old vine nebbiolo grown in three districts: Treiso, Barbaresco and Neive. Steep south facing vineyards at an elevation of 300 to 350m. The soils are of medium mixture rich in calcium.  Vanotu is the piedmontese  dialect diminutive of Giovanni (Giorgio's grandfather).  Hand harvested. Vinified separately then blended. Aged 20 to 22 months in French oak barrels (80% new) then spend an additional 9 months in the bottle. 
 
Here’s a style that combines racy acidity, ripe black cherry and plum fruit, and baking spice notes. Firm, with an extra layer of oaky tannins. There is plenty of wine behind the wood, and the lasting impression is of fruit and underbrush.
