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.


The Piani hill is located in Ferrere (Treiso). Old vine Barbera rooted in a west facing  vineyards at an elevation of 250 to 350m. The soil is of medium mixture with a little percentage of a kind of clay very similar to bentonite that makes the soil spongy and very unstable. Hand harvested. Maceration takes 15-20 days in stainless steel cask with controlled temperature. Then ageing is about 8-9 months in oak barrels (30-40% in barrique and the remaining in 50 hl barrels).

Deeply colored and concentrated, Barbera d'Alba Piani is powerful, dense and explosive. It delivers saturated flavors of plum, blackberry, chocolate and toasty oak, balanced and fresh, in a ripe, extracted style. The dusty finish echoes the chocolate and earth elements. This is a decidedly virile, potent Barbera with huge tannins that need time to soften.
