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. The “Pelisa”, which is ruby-red in colour, has a heady, fragrant smell; the palate is full and velvety and its freshness is exquisite. This particular wine is made from the estate’s younger vineyards, which ripen in early October. After harvesting, the wine-making process 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 product that could be defined as an easy-drinking wine, suitable for serving daily. It is the perfect glass of wine to accompany our meals every day.
