Pelissero produce this Langhe Nebbiolo with the grapes that, according to the vintage, are not suitable for making Barbaresco. Among them, all new planted vineyards bought in the past few years, and consequently considered too young for producing a great Barbaresco. In vinification we try to exalt the Nebbiolo's characteristics of freshness: macerations are not too long and always temperature controlled. Ageing is made partly in barrique (20/30%) and the rest in 50 hl oak barrels for around 8/9 months. After blending, it rests in the bottle for 2 months and finally commercialized.

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.
Following a road while changing directions, repeating rites while renewing gestures, reinvesting energy while maturing experiences, gathering techniques while sowing evolution. There are new generations, new productive languages and new languages in the Langhe region. English, Macedonian, Japanese, Norwegian, German, Maghrebian: voices and faces from the world that animate the Langhe trails, the vineyards and the cellars together with the people that have been in this land forever, devoting to understand it and loving its generosity as well as its harshness.
A duchess in Alba, a count in Grinzane, nobles, marquises and lots of farmers, wine and land ambassadors. Noblemen and commoners of the beloved wine which preserves the art of waiting vintners are experts in among its scents. The choice of the territory, the evaluation of the exposure and the selection of the varietals are however, the very essentials of the wine creation process. Years that pass while observing Nature, planning, caring and learning that no project, care or observation can grasp the essence and the magic. The hands of the vintner are great but the wine vitality is still greater.
Vintage, vinification and aging plus soft presses, stainless steel vats, temperature controlled installations and French oak casks. Glass is the material that, in the shape of a bottle or goblet, contains a message that, with the help of Portughese cork, arrives intact in every country to say "Langhe": a thin but intense connecting line that travels along thousands of miles and links years of work to the passion of many. There is a land that moves towards the market and worldly vintners who after months in the fields take to fly though tied to their roots.
We are that land. If you would like to meet us, come visit our winery but if you want to know more about us just rely on one of our 250,000 bottles: Barbaresco Vanotu, Barbaresco Tulin, Barbaresco Nubiola, Dolcetto (Munfrina and Augenta), Barbera (Piani and Tulin), Nebbiolo, Long Now, Freisa, Favorita and Moscato will tell you about the physical and chemical characteristics of the 38 hectares we grow vine in at a short distance from Alba, in the districts of Treiso, Neive, Barbaresco and Neviglie. They will also speak about the personality of the three main varietals we have been growing for two generations: Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. They will speak pure Piedmontese, with reminiscences from The Balkans, Norway, North Africa, Japan…
