Olek Bondonio

Barbaresco, Piemonte

Langhe Rosso Giulietta


Pelaverga is Piedmont’s answer to Pineau d’Aunis, a light, bright and fragrant variety with plenty of charm. The majority of the fruit here comes from Olek’s Roncagliette vineyard in Barbaresco which is blessed with a southern exposure and firm clay-limestone soils. This spends a couple of weeks on skins, before being pressed off to rest for a year in tank. It has the characteristic flavours of strawberries and spice but thanks to this great site, comes with some fine little tannins to boot.
