2003 Pelissero Barbaresco Tulin
First produced in 1994 with the name “Annata” and renamed in 2001 with to “Tulin”. Named after the vineyard where the grapes for this wine come from, whose climate, composition of the soil and exposure are of great value.

Our will to lead into bottle the grapes characteristics conditions all the operations of transformation and aging. This wine is produced with modern techniques and tools, but still in traditional way trying to harmonize the austerity of this great vine with the new conceptions of persuasiveness and pleasantness linked to international tastes. Maceration in contact with the skins for about 15 days in steel casks in controlled temperature and, after a period of natural decantation always in steel, the wine passes into wood where it rests for 18/20 months. Then the part, about 50%, aged in oak casks of 50 hl is blended with the other part aged in barrique. This allows us to avoid that an excessive presence of wood further dries this wine. Still 9 months in bottles and finally released for sale.
A vivacious ruby color. At smell it expresses ample and fruity perfumes of magnesium and iron linked to the minerality of soil with well evident varietal notes and a right contribution of wood. To mouth the features of austerity typical of Nebbiolo express completely and where persuasiveness, saltiness and the right tannin give to the mouth a velvety and wrapping frame.
