Pasquale Pelissero Cascina Crosa Barbaresco DOCG 2017
- Rich, full-bodied
This Piedmontese red from Pasquale Pelissero is new to the ‘fo and a fantastic addition to our collection of premium European wines. Made from nebbiolo like it’s older brother Barolo, Barbaresco has the reputation of being brighter and a touch lighter. This wine is from a 40 year old vineyard and has been aged for 2 years in the large-format French oak, traditional to the region, called “botte”. It offers a heady bouquet of forest berries and cherries, with floral notes of violet and rose. There’s tannin on the palate, but not so much that you can’t open it young, backed by cherries, plums and spice. Make sure to decant to get the most out of this layered and structured wine.

If you’ve never plugged Piedmont into Google images then now’s the time. A northern Italian region that spoons both France and Switzerland, it’s one of the more picturesque wine regions in the world and better yet, the vinos do the dramatic backdrop justice. Piedmont wines benefit from the warmth of the Mediterranean and the chill of the Alps, and the combination of these climates means the valleys will often be shrouded in fog. Behind the fog you’ll find Piedmont’s two superstar wines: Barolo and Barbaresco. Known as the King of Wines in Italy, Barolo in particular is lauded over worldwide but really, there’s more to Piedmont than these two. Aside from juicy, tannic nebbiolo, keep an eye out for barbera, the go-to vino for many Italians.
