"San Pancrazio" Barbera d'Alba Superiore DOC 2021 - Pelassa

If Nebbiolo is destined for the production of important and rare wines, the true protagonist of Piedmontese viticulture is undoubtedly Barbera. In this case, Pelassa processes it in purity. The grapes, harvested in mid-October, come from the estate's vineyards, which are over 300 metres above sea level. Here, the bunches that reach perfect ripeness can be used for the production of this San Pancrazio, Barbera d'Alba Superiore. At the end of the wine-making process, which is traditional, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and is then placed in small oak barrels and Tonneaux for a period of about a year. It is then bottled and placed in the cellar for a further ageing period of at least 12 months. A very intense ruby red colour, the nose reveals a complex bouquet, with ripe fruit mixed with a good hint of vanilla. In the mouth it is round and harmonious. Very complex, it is endowed with excellent persistence and flavour. A wine of exceptional finesse and considerable class, it goes well with typical Piedmontese fresh pasta, roast red and white meats, game and spicy cheeses.

Situated in Montà d'Alba, the Pelassa winery leads vineyards in the Roero and Verduno, for the production of Barolo. Mario founded the Pelassa company in 1960 at the end of his military service. Today, it is run by the whole family, with Maria Teresa, known as Teresina, who has always been at Mario's side, and her sons Davide and Daniele, in the vineyard and cellar respectively. A scrupulous work of selection and clonal programming within the new plantings, and great efforts for investments in the cellar, guarantee the enhancement of the quality of the grapes harvested and the achievement of the objective of producing wines that have a full wine-vineyard-terroir correspondence. It is no coincidence that in recent years the company has concentrated mainly on the cultivation of the three varieties that are best suited to the typical soils of the area: Arneis, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

    The Pelassa 2020 Barbera d'Alba Superiore San Pancrazio sources its fruit from vineyards in Montà d’Alba in the Roero region. The wine is dark in color concentration with plummy aromas of dark, raw fruit. It carries medium fruit weight and covers the palate nicely, setting the scene for a spicy chorizo pizza. 25,000 bottles were produced.

  • James Suckling 91

    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.
