1999 Pelissero Barbaresco Annata
Price: $87.50    Your Price: $77.00
Quantity in Stock: 6

(93 Points) A dark, powerful wine, the 1999 Barbaresco bursts from the glass with notable depth, intensity and pure resonance. Black cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and licorice meld together in a Barbaresco endowed with magnificent richness and breadth. The 1999 is a bit rustic in style, which is typical of the year, but it also has enough volume to drink well for another 5-7. This is a magnificent showing. -- Antonio Galloni


1999 Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu
Price: $196.00    Your Price: $172.48
Quantity in Stock: 2

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec '00... 'Saturated medium ruby. Superripe aromas of black raspberry, roasted plum, dark chocolate, mocha, and sexy, smoky oak. Then almost surprisingly fresh and juicy in the mouth despite its roasted nuances, with strong, delineated fruit flavors of noteworthy depth. Here the fine tannins spread out nicely on the impressively long finish. A rather broad Barbaresco that also offers good cut and grip. 89-92 points'

2009 Pelissero Barbera D'alba Tulin
Price: $33.00    Your Price: $29.04
Quantity in Stock: 4

(89 Points)  A new addition to the lineup, the single-vineyard 2009 Barbera d’Alba Tulin wraps around the palate with blackberries, smoke, tar and licorice. From a stylistic point of view, the Tulin is a decidedly racy, at times super-ripe wine clearly marked by two years in barrel. This is certainly a promising wine. It will be interesting to see what develops in future vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. Pelissero is without question one of the top-tier estates in Barbaresco. Every wine in this lineup is solid and well worth seeking out. In particular, the 2009 Barbareschi are some of the very finest wines I have ever tasted here. The management of the tannins – such a problem at other estates – was expertly handled. Pelissero’s 2010 Barbareschi had been bottled just before my visit and were too closed down to properly evaluate.  Wine Advocate #203Oct 2012


2010 Pelissero Barbaresco Tulin
Price: $90.00    Your Price: $79.20
Quantity in Stock: 7

(94 Points)  Pelissero's 2010 Barbaresco Tulin explodes from the glass with a head-spinning array of aromas and flavors. Rich, full-bodied and intense, the 2010 boasts stunning depth to match its racy, intense structure. Deeply spiced, mentholated notes saturate the full-bodied, voluptuous finish. The combination of fruit and structure is super exciting, to say the least.  Galloni


2010 Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu
Price: $90.00    Your Price: $79.20
Quantity in Stock: 4

(94 Points) The 2010 Barbaresco Vanotu is an extremely persuasive expression of Nebbiolo that opens to a dark, brooding color, thick concentration and an attractive dark garnet hue. The personality here is overtly savory and masculine with layers of cured meat and leather that support a wider offering of pressed cherries and tar. The generosity is outstanding. The only element out of place is the tannin that is spectacularly young at this point. This wine won’t show its best side for years more to come. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035. Giorgio Pelissero has a good amount of news to report from his corner of the Barbaresco appellation. He is putting the finishing touches on a new winery with extra room for storing old vintages. He is also about to announce the acquisition of four additional hectares that will bring his total vineyard holdings to an impressive 40 hectares (with 15 hectares of Nebbiolo in the Barbaresco denomination).

2011 Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola
Price: $42.00    Your Price: $36.96
Quantity in Stock: 28

(94 Points)  The 2011 Barbaresco Nubiola is exceptionally beautiful and expressive. Spices, dark red stone fruits, mint and leather all meld together in a pliant, expressive Barbaresco that will drink well early. Sweet floral notes, anise and rose petal are laced throughout the finish. Ripe, silky tannins provide the backdrop for a gracious, understated Barbaresco. The 2011 brings together the freshness of the 2010 with the fruit density of the 2009, a pretty appealing combination in my book. -- Antonio Galloni


2012 Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu
Price: $119.00    Your Price: $104.72

2012 Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola
Price: $44.00    Your Price: $38.72
Quantity in Stock: 23

Characteristics: it is the last born of our Barbaresco wines. The first bottles date back to 2001. It belongs to an historical, traditional and cultural important denomination and it has got all the strength and complexity a great vine is able to express. The blend Nubiola shows in fact the name with which in the historical treaty of agriculture "De Ruralium Commodorum" (dated 1330) where Pier Dè Crescenzi (a jurist of Bologna) mentions one of the best vines known at that time describing it as a "a sort of black grape called Nubiola… wonderfully vinous and adapted for wine making."

Tasting sheet: it has an intense ruby red colour, to the nose it has both fruity and floreal notes that go from the ripe red fruit to the officinal herbs. Soft, tasty, velvety at the same time, leaves on the taste buds a note of sweetness and roundness typical of ripe grape with a slightly dry and astringent closure that distinguishes the Nebbiolo.


2013 Pelissero Nebbiolo Langhe
Price: $25.50    Your Price: $22.44
Quantity in Stock: 11

Site: Treiso, Neive and Barbaresco villages Variety: Nebbiolo 100% Exposure: south - east - west Altitude: 200 – 400 m. Year of planting: all the Nebbiolo vines for Barbaresco planted in more recent years, up to 15 years old age Breeding form: gujot Density of plants per hectare: 5000 First and unique year of production: 1960 Soil: different soils in Barbaresco area. Characteristics: we produce this wine 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. Technical notes: 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. Tasting sheet: clear, bright, purple red with evident clearer tannic nuances around the glass edge. Olfactory sensations are persistent, fragrant and wide open exalting the fruit of the wine. It is also rounded by evident perception of strawberry and raspberry typical in this wine. Good gustative persistence with the classic light tannin astringency of Nebbiolo, very well rounded by the wood aromas and other flavour components (proteins, salts, trivalent salts). Lovely finish, persistent and stimulating.
