Pelissero Le Nature Vino Rosso Barlet 2019
This is a juicy blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. It serves as an easy breezy introduction to the wines of Piedmont in Northern Italy, a region who’s wines can otherwise be quite stern. It’s light, red-fruited and supple, with oh so gentle savoury, dry tannin. Prosciutto, Parmesan and Pelissero….. perfecto.
After growing grapes for generations, the Barbaresco-based Pelissero family started bottling their own estate wines in the 1960s. With oenologist Giorgio Pelissero at the helm, the family produce Barbaresco, Langhe Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto from their 42 hectares of vines.
