Pelassa Sot Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC 2015

$36.00

Handpicked in late October. The grapes were destemmed and matured in Slavonian and French oak.
Delicate aromas of florals, strawberries, bilberries and raspberries on a pleasantly spicy base. The palate is dry but velvety, harmonious and very persistent with similar characteristics on the palate – rose petals, wild berries and gentle spice. It has class and style, worth drinking with all courses of the meal particularly with fresh pasta and meat dishes.
