2015 Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola
From the Winery
Technical notes: the variety Nebbiolo composing for 100% the Barbaresco wine is the focal point of this wine that we consider the starting Barbaresco, the basis from which to start in order to arrive to the best with our two selections. Just for the different composition of the provenience soils, the consequent used wine making techniques and the historicity we wanted to express with the name, it is a very traditional Barbaresco. It is made in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature and automatically programmed soaking of the wine dregs, then aged in wood dosing small barriques and big 50 hl oak cask in variable proportion according to the vintage features always with the intent to exalt the Nebbiolo's variety's characteristics.
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.
Vinous Media: 93 Points
Racy and exuberant on the palate, with terrific fruit density, the 2015 Barbaresco Nubiola captures the exuberant side of the year nicely. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, mint, licorice and orange peel all flesh out in the glass. In 2015, the Nubiola – which can be a bit lean – is nicely filled out. Pliant, deep and powerful, the 2015 appears to have a very bright future. Best of all, the 2015 will drink well with minimal cellaring.
Wine Spectator: 92 Points
Marked by new oak, in an attractive way, this red delivers coconut, vanilla and spice notes over cherry, tar and underbrush flavors. Shows an extra layer of tannins that needs to be resolved.
