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 Cascina Tolino site (Treiso/Neviglie). Steep south east to east facing vineyards at an elevation of 250 to 400m. The soil is of medium mixture with a rich component of mineral microelements as magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium. Tulin in local dialect indicates a small circular metal plate as commonly used in churches for retention of melted candle wax or for the distribution of food to the cattle in the stables. Hand harvested. Aged 18 to 20 months in oak (50% botte and 50% new oak barrels) then spends an additional 9 months in the bottle.

The 2017 Barbaresco Tulin is a rich, sensual wine. Young Nebbiolo tannins need a bit of time to soften, but that should not be an issue in time. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, mocha, cinnamon and rose petal all build as this racy, extroverted Barbaresco shows off its considerable charm. Drinking Window: 2022 - 2032.
