Giorgio Pelissero
Giorgio Pelissero is a tall, handsome and charismatic winemaker who has an extraordinary humility borne from hard-work in the vineyards and a respect for people and grapes with whom he shares the land. His generosity is only matched by focus and skill - the wines that come from his land are an amazing snapshot of all that is good from the region of Piemonte, from Moscato, Freisa and the simple Favorita, right the way up to Riserva Barbarescos, all made in tiny quantities in rare vintages. This Barbera is a super example of fabulous quality in all parts - ripe fruit, concentrated flavours, excellent use of oak, tannic structure and a long, long finish. It really is a wine for people who love reds and for anyone interested in Italian food and culture.
