      "Pelissero's 2018 Dolcetto d'Alba Munfrina is laced with bright red cherry, plum, spice and sweet floral notes that give this racy, flavorful Dolcetto quite a bit of nuance. Aging in steel keeps the flavors bright and nicely focused." Vinous

      A Barbera of selected class and beauty. Wonderfully balanced with a concise fruit and beautiful minerality. Carried by energy, this exceptional wine leads to a long finale. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Barbera d'Alba Tulin is gorgeous. Racy, silky and exceptionally polished, the 2015 exudes class.

    • "Long Now" Rosso Langhe DOC 2014

      “Long Now” Rosso Langhe DOC 2014

      Dark ruby. Opulent nose with notes of black cherry, smoke, tobacco and liquorice. In the drink it is full of tension, with a breadth and power that is second to none. In this exceptional wine, Barbera and Nebbiolo merge into a spectacular blend, rich, powerful and with a beautiful, long resonance into an almost infinite final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich and dense, exuding blackberry, plum, tar and leafy underbrush flavors, this red is a bit austere now, yet racy, finishing with a hefty dose of tannins." Wine Spectator

      "The 2014 Long Now, Pelissero's Barbera/Nebbiolo blend, is superb. Deep, intense Barbera fruit takes center stage in this release. Graphite, smoke, licorice, blackberry jam and dark spices emerge from the 2014, a wine that is rich and unctuous yet also linear in structure. Giorgio Pelissero won't bottle the 2014 until 2017, but even today, it is striking and also highly promising. It will be interesting to see how the 2014 responds to the last phase of aging." VINOUS

      “Long Now” Rosso Langhe DOC 2016

      Long Now is still a real secret tip for us. Dark ruby. Opulent nose with notes of black cherry, smoke, tobacco and licorice. In the libation exciting with a breadth and power that is unparalleled. In this exceptional wine, Barbera and Nebbiolo merge into a spectacular blend, rich, powerful and with a beautiful, long resonance into an almost infinite final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Long Now is rich and flamboyant in the glass, with the resonance of the old-vine Barbera front and center. Black cherry, dark spice, crème de cassis, licorice, cloves and menthol build in a deep, resonant wine endowed with tons of pedigree and pure power. The 2016 is a wine of real dimension." Vinous

    • Barbaresco "Nubiola" DOCG 2016

      Barbaresco “Nubiola” DOCG 2016

      Sparkling ruby. Expressive, very fragrant bouquet of red stone fruit, mint and leather. Juicy, clear approach with smooth tannins. Wonderfully long finish with ripe berries and spices. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense ruby with slight garnet edge. Appealing nose with fine notes of raspberry, plum and pomegranate. On the palate it shows handy tannin, a lot of sweet melt, in the final then clear wood notes." Falstaff

      "Tasted blind. Dark and almost impenetrable ruby – oak? Oh, yes: sweetly oaked, deep, crushed dark-fruit nose. Lots of luscious, sweet oak, while the succulent fruit has already begun to integrate. Gripping yet ripe tannins. It is a lot of oak and although the fruit handles it more than well, I wonder if this will limit its ageing capacity. Right now it is super-hedonistic while the gripping structure truly adds pizzazz." Jancis Robinson

      "The charming and dynamic Giorgio Pelissero produces this wine from six small sites throughout the Barbaresco region. It's aged mostly in large casks but also in some older barriques. The nose is lush and smoky, with very ripe cherry aromas. Suave and broad, it shows ample flesh and ripe tannins. It's a touch extracted and not very nuanced but it packs a punch and has good weight and length." Decanter

      "Marked by spicy oak, this red is rich and laced with cherry, plum, menthol and tobacco flavors. Balanced and densely structured, showing length on the gripping finish." Wine Spectator

      "Powerful, luminous ruby with a slight garnet shimmer. Compact nose, reveals notes of beetroot, dried porcini mushrooms and plums. Round and smooth in the beginning and the course, a lot of fine-meshed tannin, in the final firm pressure, very balanced." Falstaff

    • Barbaresco "Vanotu" DOCG 2016

      Barbaresco “Vanotu” DOCG 2016

      Vanotu is the top plant of Pelissero and every year very convincing. Attractive garnet red, concentrated, hearty bouquet with fine tobacco and leather notes. Generous also on the palate, with overripe sour cherries and with densely woven tannins. A spectacular and masculine wine with great storage potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense bright ruby red with fine garnet edge. Very present and dense nose, shows a lot of intense fruit, after blackberry, dark cherry and plum, in the background after truffle. Dense and powerful at the base, spreads well, in the rear the wood is clearly visible, drying tannin." Falstaff

      "The flagship 2016 Barbaresco Vanotu is dense, plush and explosive. Black cherry, chocolate, licorice, spice, leather, menthol and dried flowers all run through this rich, sumptuous Barbaresco. Even with all of its obvious richness and muscle, the 2016 retains a good bit of freshness. Readers need to give the 2016 time to settle down post bottling." Vinous

      "A supple, elegant style, this offers cherry, floral, iron, tar, toasty and spice aromas and flavors. Fleshy midpalate, this stands up to the tannins that emerge on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2042." Wine Spectator

    About the winemakers
    Pelissero
    Piedmont
    Pelissero

    The Pelissero winery, now in its third generation, is nestled in the hills of the Langhe and surrounded by the medieval tower of Barbaresco and Château Guarene.

    In the course of time, the company, founded by Luigi Pelissero and managed since 1987 by his son Giorgio, a trained oenologist, has become more and more important in the wine world.

    Originally, the family had only grown grapes in Piedmont in order to sell them later. Luigi first pressed and bottled the first bottles. The heritage was later improved by Giorgio, with the help of his sister Cristina, through constant research in the vineyards and cellars to ensure the same high quality of the wines every year.

    The 40 hectares of vineyards represent about 85 percent of the autochthonous varieties Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. They make up the great charm of the region. The vineyards are located in the municipalities of Neive, Barbaresco and Treiso. Thanks to the extensive areas, the best berries can always be selected from the grapes. As far as his traditional wine style is concerned, Giorgio has clear ideas. Besides a very high drinkability purity and taste elegance are the preferred characteristics, writes the Gambero Rosso. The family also succeeds again and again in transferring the profile of each individual vineyard to the corresponding label and in clearly highlighting the character of each grape variety.

    The spirited and aging wines of the Azienda Agricola Pelissero can be very appealing even at a young age. They are aged in wooden barrels of different sizes and often new ones. The wine range extends from the very inexpensive Barbera d'Alba to the exclusive and therefore much more expensive Barbaresco Vanotu from Basarin di Neive. By the way, the model wine bears the nickname of Cristinas and Giorgio's grandfather. He has already been awarded several times by the Gambero Rossowith three glasses. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Giorgio's dynamic management style has had a decisive impact on the company and proves its above-average capabilities even in difficult years with highly competitive markets ... Stylistically he focuses on character and personality."Gambero Rosso
