Pelissero Dolcetto d'Alba Munfrina 2015
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Dolcetto d'Alba|
The visual impact is of a beautiful, very bright purple-red. Olfactory impressions show very open and varietal fruity aromas, ranging from red cherry to morello cherry. In the mouth the gustative complexity is well amalgamated between the various tannic components, acidic and alcoholic, which make the wine sapid but very pleasant. The slightly bitter aftertaste, reminiscent of almond, is the typical vein of this vine.
Pelissero is one of Decanter Magazine's, top ten producers of Barolo & Barbaresco. He is an unashamed modernist and showman, but also incredibly hardworking. For Decanter's, Stephen Brook, Pelissero's opulent reds are amongst the best due to his balanced approach towards an international outlook whilst remaining rooted in tradition and culture of Treiso.
