Barbera d'Alba DOC Pelisa

Barbera is the most widely-grown variety in Piedmont. The qualities distinguishing the Barbera grown in the Barbera d’Alba appellation, which encompasses both the right (Langhe) and left (Roero) sides of the River Tanaro are its finesse, body and elegance.
This particular wine is made from the estate’s younger vineyards, which ripen early in October. The vinification lasts for around 15 days, and is followed by a short period of maturation: 70% in stainless steel, and the remaining 30% in oak for one year. The result is a ruby-red wine with a fragrant, vinous nose, and a smooth, full-bodied palate that offers a magnificent sensation of freshness. A product that could be defined as an easy-drinking, mealtime wine, perfect for serving every day.

Colour: deep ruby red with bright highlights.
Nose: forthrightly and fruitily intense, initial sensations of sour black cherry and cherry giving way to pleasantly earthy notes of damp soil.
Bouquet: despite a lack of structure and persistence, its characteristic fruity freshness makes Pelisa eminently quaffable.
Serving combinations: its fresh, fruity vein makes this wine an ideal accompaniment to grilled meats, especially pork chops and sausage.
