2014 Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu
Not sure of the origin of these notes, but they are true enough, if a bit market-y.
Pelissero’s 2014 Barbaresco Vanotu matches its intensity with focus, revealing its kaleidoscopic notes with precision and power. Fistfuls of rose petals, lots of minerals, a touch of leather, and a dusting of spices, licorice, espresso and underbrush frame this wine’s black and red fruits, combining to create a perfume that promises an exciting palate, and this wine does not disappoint! Vibrant acidity animates this concentrated Barbaresco that matches its dry extract with chewy tannins, fine minerality, and a gorgeous structure--it’s simply stellar!
Deriving from vines planted in 1964 in plots located in Treiso, Barbaresco and Neive, the grapes for this wine ferment with temperature control; the wine ages for 20 to 22 months in barriques (80% new), followed by nine months in bottle before release. A serious Barbaresco, this wine needs time in the cellar for true enjoyment, but it will drink for decades.
