Dolcetto d'Alba DOC 'Augenta' 2019 (750 ml.) - Pelissero

Dolcetto d'Alba 'Augenta' by Pelissero is produced with low yields and in suitable climate conditions, this allows it to exalt fruit, tannic sweetness and a great wine harmony. The grape, coming from predominantly calcareous soil, confers to the wine great complexity. Therefore it needs better attention and an atypical winemaking for Dolcetto grape: 10/12 days of maceration in temperature controlled cask, cold decantation in stainless steel. Finally, the ageing lasts around 6/7 months in oak barrels of 50 hl in order to harmonize the strong tannins given by the soil. Before going out on the market, the wine needs 2 more months ageing in the bottle

THE WINE

Historical flagship wine every year it expresses to its best the great potentialities of Dolcetto grapes. This wine is produced with low yields and in suitable climate conditions, this allows it to exalt fruit, tannic sweetness and a great wine harmony. The dialectal name "Augenta" derives from Latin "Augere" which means "augment", i.e. to make greater as in size, extend or quantity. It seems, as a matter of fact, that long time ago the vines that were cultivated on this side of the hill had superior quality than the average. The grape, coming from predominantly calcareous soil, confers to the wine great complexity.

THE COMPANY

Our family has always been dedicated to agriculture with a Langa and peasant DNA. We are in Treiso, a township that became independent from Barbaresco in 1957, and which is in the heart of the production zone of one of the top three Italian DOCG, King Nebbiolo. It is the grape varietal that more than any other has defined and will continue to define the history of our hills and of the national and international wine making. We are the heirs of this land and of this vine.

The spirit of continuous research in the vineyard, and afterwards in the cellar, plus passion, commitment and innovative dynamism are the firm bases that we combine with the pride of having reached the third generation of viticulturists. Our philosophy has not changed, however: we focus only on original varietals that are typical of our land, particularly Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, which make up about 85% of our production. All the grapes that we use come from the 38 hectares that we own. We are able, with the help of knowledgeable colleagues, to directly supervise the entire production cycle, from pruning to marketing of 250,000 bottles every year.m The Balkans, Norway, North Africa, Japan…
