Made from the estate’s younger vineyards, the Pelisa comes from younger vines in the Canale and Priocca areas within the Roero zone.

Tasting Notes

A combination of stainless steel and oak aging are used with the vinification of this wine: the stainless steel (70%) preserves Barbera’s youthful fruit and acidity while the oak (30%) adds a bit of depth and concentration.  The result is a ruby-red wine with a fragrant nose of black cherry underscored by earthy notes of damp soil.  Smooth and full-bodied on the palate, it offers a magnificent sensation of freshness.

Food Pairing

An ideal wine for everyday enjoyment, best served with grilled pork chops and sausage.
