Cultivating Dreams, Harvesting Passion

Giorgio Pelissero  

           Giorgio Pelissero makes some of the greatest wines in the world. He combines the best of the modern approach with the best of the traditional approach. Besides that, he has a general artistic sensibility that is rare.

        Today we are offering the two single vineyard wines from Pelissero. Vanotu is a vineyard originally owned by Giorgio’s grandfather. Vanotu sits at the intersection of Barbaresco, Treiso and Nieve and has some of the steepest hillsides in all of Barbaresco. Tulin, in Treiso, is named after a small circular metal vessel used in churches. Giorgio wants the wine from Tulin to represent a combination of spirituality and handicraft.

        The 2014 vintage has turned out to be really wonderful in Barbaresco. One of the most pleasant surprises of my career was tasting barrel samples of the 2014. The wines have an amazing and unique identity. I will be selectively buying many of these, including the Pelissero, for my own cellar.

        Last year we went to dinner with Giorgio at Ciau del Tornavento and he brought a bottle of the 2004 Vanotu Riserva. This is without question one of the best wines I have ever had.

The wines will be here first week of April

This will be the only offer of these 2014s for the state of Massachusetts
