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 in tank until the following summer. This pairs classic notes of strawberries and spice with some fine tannins thanks to the pedigree of the site.
