Azienda Agricola Daniele Pelassa

Based in Montà d’Alba, in the chalky Roero hills of Piedmont, the Pelassa family owns 12 hectares of vineyards. The winery was created in 1960 by the late Mario Pelassa, who has been in the wine business for over 50 years. Today, his sons, Davide and Daniele, continue with the family tradition, expanding their winery into new markets. Pelassa adheres to traditional methods of vinification, but has integrated modern techniques through the introduction of new state-of-the-art winery.

They concentrate on the cultivation of the three varieties best suited for the land: Arneis, Nebbiolo and Barbera. The estate is located in the hamlet of San Vito di Montà, which lends its name to the firm’s flagship Arneis. Careful selection of vines, new equipment and considerable investment in technology have enhanced the quality of the wines.

A lesser known producer, Pelassa produces some of the best Barolo in Italy. Recently their hard work was recognised with superb ratings awarded by the prestigious wine critic Robert Parker and the acclaimed wine critic and journalist James Suckling.
