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.
An approachably priced release of about 25,000 bottles, the Pelassa 2019 Barbera d'Alba Superiore San Pancrazio shows a pretty and elegant side to this versatile and food-friendly red grape from Piedmont. The wine opens to notes of wild berry, sour cherry and plum. Those tangy fruit notes are followed by fresh acidity and a lightweight style that gives this wine classic lines and an immediate appeal.- 91 pts Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Plenty of sweet-berry and citrus aromas and flavors. Medium-to full-bodied with bright acidity and a delicious, creamy finish. Tangy at the end. Drink now.- 91 pts James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
