Olek Bondonio

Barbaresco, Piemonte

Langhe Rosso Giulietta

2017

Pelaverga is Piedmont’s answer to Pineau d’Aunis, a light, bright and fragrant varietal 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. This has the characteristic flavours of wild strawberries and white pepper, but thanks to this great terroir, comes with some fineĀ little tannins to boot.
