Pelassa are swiftly gaining a reputation amongst Piedmont’s best, winning rewards and generating interest around the world. Exclusive to Davy’s, this small family estate is starting to turn heads.
After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is matured in French and Slavonian wooden casks for 12 months before another 12 months in bottle. Fragrant bouquet with ripe berry fruit and vanilla notes. Full bodied with a smooth palate and good concentration of flavours.
Lush black cherry nose, with abundant fruit and just a hint of charred oak. The palate is sleek and stylish, with admirable acidity that brings freshness. There’s power here, but it’s modified by the acidity and limpidity of the fruit. Quite long.- 93 pts Stephen Brook, Decanter Magazine
