VINOUS: OCTOBER 2017

VINOUS: OCTOBER 2017

Giorgio Pelissero's 2014s are just as good from bottle as they were from barrel. The wines have shut down considerably, though, so they really do need to be cellared for at least a few years to be at their best. If opened young, the 2014s need quite a bit of air. The 2015s are much more charming, seductive and immediate. It will be interesting to see if the 2015s shut down after bottling or not. As always, Giorgio Pelissero crafts forward, fruit-driven Barbarescos long on personality. From 2014 Barbaresco: An October Surprise (Oct 2017) by Antonio Galloni 2014 Barbaresco Nubiola Sweet red cherry, plum, flowers, mint and pine are all perked up by the bright acids of the vintage. This nervous, energetic Barbaresco needs time to unwind, but it is unquestionably attractive. As always, the Nubiola is the most feminine of Pelissero's Barbarescos. Hints of sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, orange peel and spice add further shades of aromatic nuance. The Nubiola is a blend of fruit from six parcels. 92 Antonio Galloni Oct 2017 2014 Barbaresco Tulin The 2014 Barbaresco Tulin is a powerhouse. A rush of dark-fleshed fruit, chocolate, mocha, cedar, smoke and leather hits the palate. Brooding and tannic, the 2014 is going to need at least a few more years in bottle to be at its best. There is no shortage of power or intensity, that much is evident. 93 Antonio Galloni Oct 2017 2014 Barbaresco Vanotu The 2014 Barbaresco Vanotu is just as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel. Like the Tulin, the Vanotu is decidedly big and tannic in feel. Black cherry, mocha, plum, leather, gravel, licorice and dark spice find support from beams of tannin that give the wine its shape. The Vanotu finishes with serious weight and pure power. The Vanotu is another wine that demands cellaring. 94+ Antonio Galloni Oct 2017 2015 Barbaresco Nubiola The 2015 Barbaresco Nubiola is terrific. In fact, the 2015 may be the best Nubiola proprietor Giorgio Pelissero has made to date. Polished and nuanced, with softer contours than is the norm, the 2015 possesses striking aromatic intensity, lovely inner sweetness and terrific overall balance. The flavors are remarkably vivid throughout. Hard candy, wild flowers, mint and rose petal are all laced into the persistent, striking finish. There is so much to look forward to. (91-93) Antonio Galloni Oct 2017 2015 Barbaresco Tulin The 2015 Barbaresco Tulin is exotic in the glass. Powerful and racy, the Tulin captures all of the exuberance of the year. This is a decidedly flamboyant style, and yet the 2015 retains terrific purity and nuance. Even so, the Tulin exudes depth and intensity in all of its dimensions. (92-95) Antonio Galloni Oct 2017 2015 Barbaresco Vanotu Pelissero's 2015 Barbaresco Vanotu exudes freshness and energy, not to mention exceptional balance. Blood orange, pomegranate, ripe red cherry and French oak run through this super-expressive Barbaresco. The 2015 is bold and racy, but, like all of these wines, it needs more time in bottle to come into its own. (92-95) Antonio Galloni Oct 2017

antonio galloni: vinous 2016 (part 2)

Following Barbaresco 2014 reviews on the Vinous web portal by Antonio Galloni, we are so happy to share with you the scores of Long Now 2014 and Barbera Piani 2014. Although 2014 has been defined "difficult" from many people, as you could see (and taste) for us it was an excellent vintage! Thanks to a great work in the vineyard and cellar, our efforts have been rewarded! 2014 Giorgio Pelissero Long Now The 2014 Long Now, Pelissero's Barbera/Nebbiolo blend, is superb. Deep, intense Barbera fruit takes center stage in this release. Graphite, smoke, licorice, blackberry jam and dark spices emerge from the 2014, a wine that is rich and unctuous yet also linear in structure. Giorgio Pelissero won't bottle the 2014 until 2017, but even today, it is striking and also highly promising. It will be interesting to see how the 2014 responds to the last phase of aging. -- Antonio Galloni (91-94) 2014 Giorgio Pelissero Barbera d'Alba Piani The 2014 Barbera d' Alba Piani is shaping up to be superb. Graphite, smoke, licorice, black cherry, plum and lavender are all beautifully delineated. Vibrant and pulsing with energy, the 2014 shows the freshness and coolness of the vintage. Once again, Pelissero did not bottle his flagship Riserva Barbera Tulin in 2013. Instead, all the fruit went into the Piani. -- Antonio Galloni (90-92)

Vintners of Nebbiolo

Vintners of Nebbiolo

We are happy to share with you a little part of an interesting article published on National Culinary Review written by the american journalist Deborah Grossman about us. "Pelissero Giorgio Pelissero is the third-generation winegrower of the Pelissero Winery. His grandfather Giovanni started growing grapes in the early 1900s, and his father first bottled wine in 1960. By 1990, enologist Giorgio took over the winery and expanded the production in Treiso, the heart of the Barbaresco region, exporting to more than 50 countries. “It is easier to buy grapes when vintners want to follow a trend,” says Pelissero. “But I make decisions on what to grow based on the land.” With four vineyards, including the estate property, to choose from, Pelissero produces a wide selection of wines. His personal favorites are classic, age-worthy Barbaresco DOCG Vanotu and Vanotu Riserva, named in the Piemontese dialect for his grandfather Giovanni."

WINE SPECTATOR: vertical-tasting of Vanotu

WINE SPECTATOR: vertical-tasting of Vanotu

We communicate You with great happiness and satisfaction a very important article published on the on-line Wine Spectator Magazine and written by Bruce Sanderson. You will find below the link of the article. "Giorgio Pelissero’s flagship Nebbiolo comes from the intersection of the Piedmont zone’s three main townships. In Italy, Piedmont's Barbaresco has its namesake village, with its famous tower and Gaja. Neive is the largest township and home to Giacosa. Treiso, the other main township, often gets overlooked, despite boasting Pio Cesare's hilltop perch, Il Bricco. Higher in elevation and without the household names of its neighbors, the Nebbiolos of Treiso can be austere in their youth, due to higher acidities and assertive tannins. Yet, this is also their distinctive feature. Treiso is home to Pelissero, an estate whose majority of vineyards lie within Treiso. The one anomaly is its flagship Barbaresco, Vanotu, the Piemontese dialect for Giovanni and named after proprietor Giorgio Pelissero's grandfather. Vanotu hails from three different MGAs (Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive), each located in three different townships of Barbaresco: Tre Stelle lies within Barbaresco and includes the original parcel from Giovanni Pelissero, replanted by his son Luigi in 1964; Basarin lies in Neive and Marcarini in Treiso. In total, there are 10 acres of Nebbiolo. I recently tasted 22 vintages of Vanotu, non-blind, with its United States importer Dominic Nocerino of Vinifera Imports in Wine Spectator's New York office. All the bottles came from Vinifera's temperature-controlled warehouse, with the exception of the 1993, 1991 and 1989. All the wines were vinified by Giorgio Pelissero, the beginning of the new era at Pelissero since he took over with the 1989 vintage. Since 1991, the wines have been fermented in stainless steel, with roughly 15 days of maceration, spending 20 to 22 months in French barriques, 80 percent new, before an additional nine months in bottle before release. The defining style of Vanotu is freshness and elegance. Even as the fruit dissolves into tertiary notes of truffle, licorice and woodsy spices, there is sweetness, balanced by vibrant acidity. There is a nod to modernity, but the oak is not intrusive. However, I believe the use of barriques does result in a more rapid evolution of the wines. Freshness was evident in the 2004 Vanotu, a harmonious, classic Nebbiolo and my favorite of the group. Its complex nose of truffle, macerated cherry, licorice, tar and spice was matched by sweet fruit, with licorice, tar and spice on the finish. I put the 2011, 2001 and 1989 vintages right behind it in quality. I found similarities between the 2011 and '89, despite more than 20 years separating the two. They were elegant, with plenty of finesse, purity and detail, but while the 2011 delivered primary, fresh fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry with flowers and spice, the 1989 was aged fruit and spice, more of a confit, with an inherent sweetness. The 2001 had more power and structure, with a touch of austerity to its leather, tobacco, tar, iron and underbrush, the fruit maturing to plum and fruitcake. My next group of favorites included the 2010, whose aromas were beginning to develop sweet cherry, leather, tar and hints of rose, matched to a profile that was vibrant and long. Now at 10 years, the 2006 offered a complex bouquet of truffle, macerated cherry, rose, licorice and tar. Packed with sweet fruit, it was also firm, structured and long. Going back another decade, the 1996 was austere initially, opening up to reveal truffle, licorice, leather and tar notes, sweet and long. Most of the wines were outstanding quality (90 to 94 points on Wine Spectator's 100-point scale), with four reaching classic status (95 to 100 points); in some cases these wines showed better than in their formal reviews as new releases, indicating that Vanotu is capable of improving with age. The only exceptions were the 2000 and 1997 vintages, which seemed prematurely developed, and the 1994, from a difficult vintage that saw rain and hail." WINE SPECTATOR

antonio galloni: vinous 2016

We are very proud of it: Antonio Galloni from his website VINOUS has published the scores after the tasting of our wines. Here below the scores with his complete comments. This is another set of gorgeous wines from Giorgio Pelissero. The 2013 Nebbiolos were brought in between October 18 and 26, which is very much on the late side by the estate's standards. Pelissero is among the growers who gives his wines longer aging than is now the custom. The 2013 Barbarescos spent two full years in oak (a combination of cask and barriques) and then two months in steel prior to bottling, with the Vanotu seeing the highest percentage of new French oak. Pelissero's flagship Nebbiolo/Barbera Long Now is aged exclusively in French oak, most of it new. I also tasted a few 2014s from barrel. Those wines point to another highly promising vintage at Pelissero. From Barbaresco: Worlds Apart by Antonio Galloni 2013 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola The 2013 Barbaresco Nubiola is soft, succulent and open-knit. Crushed flowers, mint, anise and dried cherries all lift from the glass in a surprisingly accessible, silky Barbaresco that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. The 2013 is not especially complex, but it is delicious and approachable, especially with some air. The Nubiola is a blend of fruit from six different sites. The youngest vines are 20 years old. 91 2013 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Tulin The 2013 Barbaresco Tulin is deep and layered in the glass, but also quite shut down today. There is plenty of intensity in the glass, but the wine still needs time to come together, as it is a bit nervous today. With air, the wine starts to show some of its pedigree, but readers are best off cellaring the 2013 for at least a few years. Sweet red cherry, plum rose petal and blood orange infuse the expressive finish. This is the wine that shows the energy of the late harvest the most. 94 2013 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu The 2013 Barbaresco Vanotu is the most spherical and succulent of the Pelissero Barbarescos. Black cherry, plum, mocha, espresso and licorice wrap around the palate. Deep, unctuous and highly expressive, all the Vanotu needs is a few more years in bottle to come into its own. The 70% new oak softens the contours and gives the wine much of its voluptuous personality. 94 2014 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Tulin The 2014 Barbaresco Tulin is bright, focused and bristling with energy. A host of dark red cherry, plum, pomegranate and rose petal nuances are laced together in this young, pulsating Barbaresco from Giorgio Pelissero. There is plenty to look forward to. (91-94) 2014 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu The 2014 Barbaresco Vanotu is young, vibrant and beautifully focused. Even though the 2014 is still in oak, it has absorbed its new oak better than some other vintages at a similar stage, which is one of the signs of a wine with tremendous structure as well as potential. The wine's energy, focus and cut are all a marvel to behold. I can't wait to taste this from bottle. (93-95) 2013 Giorgio Pelissero Long Now Pelissero's 2013 Long Now is rich, explosive and powerful, with all the pedigree of the Barbera coming through first. Nebbiolo tannins hit the mid-palate and finish, rounding things out nicely. Scents of black cherry jam, mocha, espresso and menthol add nuance throughout. The French oak needs time to settle down. Otherwise, this is a fine effort. The creamy, voluptuous finish is striking. 93 2014 Giorgio Pelissero Long Now The 2014 Long Now, Pelissero's Barbera/Nebbiolo blend, is superb. Deep, intense Barbera fruit takes center stage in this release. Graphite, smoke, licorice, blackberry jam and dark spices emerge from the 2014, a wine that is rich and unctuous yet also linear in structure. Giorgio Pelissero won't bottle the 2014 until 2017, but even today, it is striking and also highly promising. It will be interesting to see how the 2014 responds to the last phase of aging. (91-94)

Stephen Brook's 10 Top Barbaresco & Barolo producers

Stephen Brook's 10 Top Barbaresco & Barolo producers

Stephen Brook gives a personal view of the charms and complexities of Piedmont’s terroirs and wines, both traditional and more modern in style, and recommends two great wines from each of his 10 favorite producers. Giorgio Pelissero Pelissero is an unashamed modernist, eager to use, though judiciously, barriques for his opulent reds. He’s a showman, entertaining visitors at his new cellars in Treiso, but works hard too, regularly attending global wine fairs to promote his wines and recoup the considerable investments he has made. Even though his top Barbaresco, Vanotu, is aged entirely in new barriques, he is no devotee of new oak for its own sake. Other Barbarescos, such as the blend called Nubiola and the splendid Tulin from rocky soils, are aged in a mix of casks and barriques. There’s no shortage of outstanding winemakers in Barbaresco, but I just happen to like Pelissero: impish, confident but questioning; international in outlook, yet rooted in Treiso. And the wines are designed to give pleasure, and hardly ever disappoint. Vanotu, Barbaresco 2001: 93 Tulin, Barbaresco 2010: 93

A Look Back at the 2004&2005 Barbarescos by Galloni

23 June 2016

A Look Back at the 2004&2005 Barbarescos by Galloni

Dear Friends, We’re very proud to send You a retrospective from Antonio Galloni’s Vinous on the Barbarescos 2004 and 2005, by sharing together with You what is the most important challenge for a wine producer, that is to be able to produce good wines when they’re released on the market, which would result even better after more than 10 years of aging (an example is our Barbaresco Vanotu 2004, that just received a great 95, while in 2007 Galloni on The Wine Advocate awarded it with an already very good 92!) A Look Back at the 2004 & 2005 Barbarescos Giorgio Pelissero Giorgio Pelissero's 2005s and 2004s have aged nicely. The only wine that was not as expressive as it was when I first tasted it is the 2004 Riserva, but that is a wine that was never commercially released, so I doubt many readers own it. The flagship Vanotu remains one of the classiest Barbarescos readers will find in a style that leans towards the modern, but without being over the top. From A Look Back at the 2004 & 2005 Barbarescos (Jun 2016) by Antonio Galloni 2005 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu: Giorgio Pelissero's 2005 Barbaresco Vanotu is a bit restrained, but it is also impeccably balanced and gorgeous today. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and menthol flesh out in a soft, open-knit Barbaresco to drink now and over the next decade or so. A touch of French oak adds volume and sweetness through to the finish, but the wood is nicely integrated throughout. Score: 94. 2005 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Tulin (magnum): The 2005 Barbaresco Tulin, which I tasted from magnum, preserves terrific energy, even if the new oak tannins have never fully integrated. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, chalk and mint give the 2005 its distinctive, high-toned aromatics. The flavors are bright and nicely articulated throughout. Tulin can, at times, be a bit austere, especially in cooler years like 2005, and yet the wine has also stood the test of time nicely. This is another strong showing from Pelissero. Score: 92. 2004 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Tulin: The 2004 Barbaresco Tulin has aged well, but it is also ready to drink, as the first signs of tertiary development have now begun to appear. Attractive scents of dark red cherry, plum, smoke, leather and licorice add to the wine's appeal. The 2004 was aged in a new 50-hectoliter cask, and some of the new oak tannins remain. Still, this is a very pretty, if somewhat burly Barbaresco. Crushed autumn leaves and truffles are some of the nuances that shape the finish. Score: 90. 2004 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu: The 2004 Barbaresco Vanotu is quite a bit fresher and more powerful than the Tulin. Dark and beautifully layered, the Vanotu has aged nicely, even if the new oak influence is considerable. Dark cherry, licorice, tobacco and dark spices meld together in this super-expressive, richly textured Barbaresco from Giorgio Pelissero. The 2004 has really blossomed over the last few years. Score: 95. 2004 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Riserva Vanotu: The 2004 Barbaresco Riserva Vanotu is a commemorative bottling Giorgio Pelissero made to celebrate his estate's 40th anniversary. Pelissero sourced fruit from the highest part of Vanotu in parcels his father first planted in 1964. As good as the Riserva is, four years in oak has played a significant role in shaping the wine's feel and texture. Perhaps I caught the Riserva in an awkward stage, but today the fruit is a bit dried out and the oak tannins are dominant. Hints of rose petal, mint and sweet red stone fruits emerge over time, but only reluctantly. Score: 93+. Here below the link of the article: Vinous

Vinous's ratings December 2015 part 2

From Affordable Piedmont – Dolcetto, Barbera & Langhe Nebbiolo (Dec 2015) by Antonio Galloni Giorgio Pelissero's entry-level wines are just as compelling as the Barbarescos this year. This range is especially notable for the number of wines that deliver both quality and value. 2014 Giorgio Pelissero Dolcetto d'Alba Augenta: Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and cloves are some of the notes that open up in the 2014 Dolcetto d'Alba Augenta. This is a gorgeous wine for the vintage. There is a level of sweetness and mid-palate intensity that I find particularly appealing. SCORE: 90. 2014 Giorgio Pelissero Dolcetto d'Alba Munfrina: The 2014 Dolcetto d'Alba Munfrina is deep, pungent and full of character. Bold red cherry/pomegranate notes open up first, followed by shades of earthiness, tobacco, wild flowers, mint and lavender that add nuance. SCORE: 89. 2014 Giorgio Pelissero Favorita: The 2014 Favorita is absolutely delicious. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and chamomile abound in a tasty, refreshing white to drink now and over the next year or two. SCORE: 89. 2014 Giorgio Pelissero Freisa: Crushed flowers, mint, rose petals, cinnamon and sweet red berries are all pushed forward in the 2014 Freisa, a delicious lightly sparkling red to drink now and over the next few years. SCORE: 88. 2013 Giorgio Pelissero Barbera d' Alba Piani: Pelissero's 2013 Barbera d' Alba Piani embodies the virtues of this cool, late-ripening vintage. Freshly cut flowers, mint, hard candy, spices and sweet dark cherries are some of the notes that inform this vibrant, super-expressive Barbera. In 2013, Giorgio Pelissero did not bottle his top of the line Barbera Tulin; all the best fruit went into the Piani. SCORE: 91. 2013 Giorgio Pelissero Langhe Nebbiolo: The 2013 Langhe Nebbiolo is a fabulous example of the year. Crushed flowers, dried red cherries and mint are all beautifully delineated in this super-appealing, energetic, mid-weight Langhe Nebbiolo from Giorgio Pelissero. SCORE: 90. 2012 Giorgio Pelissero Barbera d'Alba Tulin: Dark, fleshy and supple, 2012 Barbera d'Alba Tulin captures the richness of the vintage in spades. Super-ripe dark cherries, plums, mint, cola and spices are front and center. This is an especially forward, giving Barbera, with all the elements in the right place. SCORE: 91. VINOUS

Vinous's ratings December 2015

Giorgio Pelissero's 2012s have maintained gorgeous freshness, most of which can be attributed to the decision to move up picking dates slightly. The Nubiola is the most classic, mid-weight of the three Barbarescos, while the Vanotu is the most opulent and the Tulin is somewhere in between. Every wine I tasted at Pelissero during my most recent visit was both delicious and something I would personally want to drink, something I can say about only a small number of estates in Piedmont. 2013 Giorgio Pelissero Long Now: The 2013 Long Now, Pelissero's Barbera/Nebbiolo blend, is wonderfully nuance and sculpted, with striking aromatics and tons of energy. Sweet dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice, menthol and licorice are fused into the nuanced, inviting finish. There aren't too many Barbera/Nebbiolo blends that remain interesting. This is one of them. SCORE: 92. 2012 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu: The 2012 Barbaresco Vanotu has the potential to be one of the wines of the vintage. Aromatically beguiling and beautifully layered in the glass, the Vanotu boasts serious depth and terrific overall balance. Hard candy, wild flowers, mint, lavender, black cherries and spices are laced into the super-expressive finish. The 2012 was aged in 80% new oak, all of which the wine has handled deftly. SCORE: 94. 2012 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Tulin: Deep, pliant and inviting, the 2012 Barbaresco Tulin offers lovely mid-palate intensity to match its powerful personality. Here the shades of fruit meld into the darker end of the spectrum as the wine fills out its broad shouldered frame effortlessly. Dark cherry, spice and leather add the final shades of nuance. SCORE: 94. 2012 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola: The 2012 Barbaresco Nubiola is the most aromatically precise, lifted wine in this range, as it so often is. Sweet tobacco, mint, crushed rose petal and bright red stone fruits all grace the palate in what has turned out to be a very classic-feeling wine for the vintage at Pelissero. The feminine, gracious finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. While the Tulin and Vanotu are richer wines, the Nubiola will appeal most to readers with more classically leaning palates. SCORE: 92 . VINOUS

2012 & 2013 Barbaresco – A Study in Contrasts

04 December 2015

2012 & 2013 Barbaresco – A Study in Contrasts

You may find here below some parts of an interesting article published on Antonio Galloni's VINOUS web page on last December. And if you'd like to read the whole article you may find the link - have a good reading! "Readers will find two very different sets of wines in the 2012 and 2013 Barbarescos. The 2012s are open-knit, supple and ready to drink, while the 2013s - from one of the latest years in recent memory - embody all the qualities that make Nebbiolo one of the world's most noble grapes; soaring aromatics, pulsating energy, structure, and, most importantly, the rare ability to transmit the essence of site. Barbaresco’s Emerging Young Producers All of which brings us to the present and future. Many of today’s most exciting Barbarescos are being made by the new generation of young producers". "In Treiso, Giorgio Pelissero makes racy, luscious Barbarescos full of personality. That is just the tip of the iceberg". "It is pretty clear that Barbaresco’s future is in the hands of today’s emerging young growers and winemakers. But Barbaresco’s producers need to get out more and eradicate a culture of insularity that has been the region’s Achilles heel for so long. Given what I have seen so far, I am optimistic that can happen". VINOUS

The new vintage 2011 of our Vanotu has been inserted on the GUIDA AI MIGLIORI VINI DI ITALIA 2015, published by Michele Longo and Massimo Claudio Comparini, with a score of 90/100 points; here below the description of the wine: 'Da una vigna di cinquant'anni, su una collina a cavallo dei tre comuni principali del Barbaresco (Neive, Treiso e, appunto, Barbaresco) Giorgio Pelissero produce questo vino dedicato alla memoria del nonno Giovanni. Il colore e' un rosso granato denso e profondo. Ha profumi centrati sul frutto: sa di ciliegia matura e polposa, di lampone, di ribes rosso. Su questi si innesta una trama di sentori floreali (la viola), di erbe (il timo, la mentuccia), di spezie. Coerente al gusto, e' solido, caldo, pieno, austero, con tannini maturi e notevole persistenza. Un vino che sta in equilibrio tra i due estremi della finezza e della potenza'.

We will recommend You here below the article issued on the food and wine monthly magazine GUSTO SANO of the month of November, where our Barbaresco Vanotu 2009 has been quoted: "Con le uve della vigna denominata Vanotu, un po' un trade d'union delle tre anime del Barbaresco visto che, seppur non molto estesa, si trova in parte in ognuno dei tre comuni della denominazione, divisa tra la zona chiamata Tre Stelle di Barbaresco, il cru Marcarini di Treiso e il cru Basarin di Neive, Giorgio Pelissero produce nella sua cantina a Treiso questo vino, salito negli ultimi anni alla ribalta di critica e premi: colore ancora rubino tendente al granato, bouquet olfattivo estremamente complesso, dalle note fresche fruttate e balsamiche a quelle piu' evolute speziate e tostate. Struttura ricca, morbida ed elegantemente avvolgente grazie a un tannino gia' vellutato, persistenza lunga ed elegante".

TULIN, CANTINA PELISSERO LA CERTEZZA DEL BARBARESCO

28 October 2014

TULIN, CANTINA PELISSERO LA CERTEZZA DEL BARBARESCO

On the MESSAGGERO newspaper of the last 28th October the journalist Fabio Turchetti wrote about our other historical Barbaresco together with the Vanotu, the Barbaresco Tulin, into an article about the trend of the new vintage 2014, where our wine has been mentioned: "Giovedi' scorso, a Parigi, l'Organizzazione Internazionale della Vigna e del Vino ha reso note le sue prime stime sulla produzione mondiale del 2014, ovviamente relative anche a vinificazioni in alcuni casi ancora non completate. Siamo all'incirca ad un 6% in meno, rispetto all'anno precedente, con la Francia che pero' riacciuffa nuovamente il primato quantitativo, addirittura con un 10% in piu' (46,2 milioni di ettolitri): al contrario dell'Italia, che perde il 15% e che quindi scivola dietro ai cugini d'Oltralpe. Sul podio anche la Spagna, con 37 milioni di ettolitri, che torna nella sua media consueta dopo l'exploit del 2013, quando ne aveva raggiunti 45 milioni! E la qualita'? Vedremo che cosa uscira' fuori dalle vinificazioni in rosso, dopo che nel mese di ottobre il sole e' tornato in molte zone a splendere e le temperature a risalire sensibilmente. Certo, l'estate si e' fatta desiderare, ma forse non e' tutto perduto. Nell'attesa, affidiamoci alle certezze di Pelissero, validissima cantina piemontese, e a qualche suo capolavoro rossista, come uno fra i Barbaresco aziendali, tutti di livello. Ad esempio il Tulin, intenso e complesso, dai ricordi minerali e di viola, confettura di prugna, tabacco e spezie, in bocca profondo e persistente. Fantastico su un arrosto misto di carni".

Degustazione Antonio Galloni Vinous 2014

Degustazione Antonio Galloni Vinous 2014

Dear All, After one month from the great news of our Barbaresco Vanotu 2010 in the menu on board of Papa Francescos flight in South Korea, we will inform You with great pleasure about the scores just issued on Antonio Gallonis web portal VINOUS after his tasting of our wines. We will propose You here below some parts of the article, that we believe it is worthier than any words or comments: Giorgio Pelisseros 2011 Barbarescos are some of the very best wines I have ever tasted here. The wines have texture, depth and resonance to spare, yet remain impeccably balanced. As always, the Vanotu is the most overt of the wines. In the warm, precocious 2011 vintage, I have a slight preference for the Nubiola and Tulin, but all three Barbarescos are terrific. From Barbarescos Stellar 2011s (Oct 2014) by Antonio Galloni: 2011 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola - 94: The 2011 Barbaresco Nubiola is exceptionally beautiful and expressive. Spices, dark red stone fruits, mint and leather all meld together in a pliant, expressive Barbaresco that will drink well early. Sweet floral notes, anise and rose petal are laced throughout the finish. Ripe, silky tannins provide the backdrop for a gracious, understated Barbaresco. The 2011 brings together the freshness of the 2010 with the fruit density of the 2009, a pretty appealing combination in my book. The 2011 Barbaresco Tulin - 95+: Pelisseros 2011 Barbaresco Tulin impresses for its crystalline purity. Bright veins of chalky salinity support the fruit in a drop-dead gorgeous, vibrant Barbaresco built on energy and nuance. An exotic finish laced with hints of tangerine peel, rose petal, anise and spices rounds things out beautifully. This is one of the most polished, graceful wines I have ever tasted from Giorgio Pelissero. The 2011 Barbaresco Vanotu - 93: The deepest and most voluptuous of Pelisseros 2011s, the Barbaresco Vanotu possesses notable depth and textural volume. Dark red and black stone fruits, spices, mint, wild flowers and new leather blossom in the glass. As always, the Vanotu is a rich, powerful Barbaresco. Ideally, readers will be able to let the wine sit in the cellar for a few years to allow some of the baby fat to melt away. The 2011 Long Now - 93: The 2011 Long Now is dark, rich and imposing, with fabulous depth allied to a sense of underlying tension that balances some of the wine s inherent opulence. Black cherries, smoke, tobacco, incense and licorice meld together in an explosive Barbera/Nebbiolo blend endowed with magnificent richness and power. Tasted next to the 2012, the 2011 is quite a bit riper and also presents more oak influence. The 2012 Long Now - 94: Pelisseros 2012 Long Now stands out for its energy, cut and focus. Here it is the wine s tension that really stands out. Lavender, smoke, mint, graphite and violets lift from the glass in a striking, crystalline Long Now. The 2012 needs time to fully come together, but it is shaping up to be a gem. We will show You here below also another article published on Gallonis web portal about his tasting of Barolo and Barbaresco vintage 1999, in which our Vanotu 1999 obtained 93 points: Giorgio Pelissero has come along way over the last fifteen years, something that is quite evident in tasting these two 1999s. At the time, Pelissero was just beginning to purchase most of the vineyards he now owns, the cellar was bare bones and the wines were works in progress. Today, Pelissero is one of the leading estates in Piedmont, which shows just how much talent, drive and passion can achieve. Pelissero describes 1999 as a late-ripening vintage. The Vanotu was harvested on October 7, while the rest of the Nebbiolos were picked on the 11th. From Checking in on the 1999 Barbarescos (Aug 2014) by Antonio Galloni: 1999 Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco - 93: A dark, powerful wine, the 1999 Barbaresco bursts from the glass with notable depth, intensity and pure resonance. Black cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and licorice meld together in a Barbaresco endowed with magnificent richness and breadth. The 1999 is a bit rustic in style, which is typical of the year, but it also has enough volume to drink well for another 5-7. This is a magnificent showing.

vinous, galloni second half

we will send You the second half of the scores issued on the website VINOUS, where Antonio Galloni described all our other wines he tasted, after the first results issued at the beginning of the month of October. Here below the scores with his complete comments, and the link of the whole article: Dolcetto d'Alba Augenta 2012: 91 - Dark red cherries, plums, spices, leather and tobacco flesh out in the 2012 Dolcetto d'Alba Augenta. A rich, broad-shouldered wine, the 2012 impresses for its texture, depth and finesse. Hints of tar, licorice and smoke add complexity on the radiant, inviting finish. Giorgio Pelissero matches the intense fruit of this clay-rich site with aging in cask; Langhe Nebbiolo 2012: 90-92 - The 2012 Langhe Nebbiolo is shaping up to be a stunner. Rich, powerful and intense, the 2012 punches well above its weight. Dark cherry, plum and spice notes flesh out on the finish. What a gorgeous, gorgeous wine. Savvy readers would do well to pick up the 2012, by the case. This is super intense for what it is; Dolcetto d'Alba Munfrina 2012: 90 - Pelisseros 2012 Dolcetto d'Alba Munfrina is gorgeous in this vintage. Freshly cut flowers, plums, red cherries and spices all come to life in a high-toned, floral Dolcetto long on personality. This is an impeccably refined, polished Dolcetto from Giorgio Pelissero, and an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. The Munfrina emerges from a parcel rich in sand and is aged in steel; Langhe Favorita 2012: 88 - The 2012 Langhe Favorita is terrific in this vintage. Tropical overtones add complexity to a core of juicy peach, apricot and spice notes. This medium-bodied yet generous white is absolutely delicious. All the elements are in the right place. I cant remember a Favorita that was this delicious; Barbera d'Alba Piani 2011: 91-93 - The 2011 Barbera d'Alba Piani, which I tasted from barrel just prior to bottling, is a beauty. Juicy dark cherries, plums, cloves, menthol and tar flesh out in a deeply expressive, vibrant Barbera bursting with intensity and appeal. This dark, mysterious, totally beautiful Barbera is without question one of the most delicious wines of the year. Wow; Langhe Nebbiolo 2011: 89 - The 2011 Langhe Nebbiolo is a gorgeous entry-level wine from Giorgio Pelissero. The dark side of Nebbiolo emerges from this supple, gracious, inviting Nebbiolo. Cloves, spices, menthol and licorice flesh out on the finish; Barbera d'Alba Tulin 2011: 91-93 - Pelissero's 2011 Barbera d'Alba Tulin is striking in its beauty. Tasted next to the 2009, the 2011 boasts even better balance, with expressive aromatics, gorgeous fruit and lively minerality. The 2011 is long, pure and vibrant in the glass, with tons of energy and pure class; Barbera d'Alba Tulin 2009: 91 - The 2009 Barbera d'Alba Tulin is drop-dead gorgeous. Dark red cherries, mocha, spices, tar and licorice are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. The 2009 is rich, resonant and full-bodied, with tons of personality. Over the last year the 2009 has come together beautifully as the oak has integrated. Today, the Tulin is striking. Vinous

welcome barbaresco 2010!

09 October 2013

welcome barbaresco 2010!

Great news arrived directly from the US: an enthusiastic Antonio Galloni from his website VINOUS has in fact published the scores after the tasting of the new vintages of our wines. Here below his notes: 2011 Langhe Rosso Long Now 92-94, tasting notes: The 2011 Long Now is shaping up to be a jewel. Dark, mysterious and brooding, the 2011 flows across the palate with layers of dark, deeply spiced fruit. In 2011, the Barbera seems to play the leading role in this Barbera/Nebbiolo blend, at least today. The 2011 needs time to fully absorb its 100% new oak, but is gorgeous all the same. Blackberry jam, licorice and cloves are some of the notes that linger on the finish. I can't wait to taste the 2011 again once the Nebbiolo awakens from its present dormant state. 2010 Barbaresco Vanotu 95, tasting notes: A beautifully, centered, polished wine the 2010 Barbaresco Vanotu impresses for its striking inner perfume and exceptional balance. In 2010, the Vanotu is impeccable and harmonious from the very first taste. Leather, licorice, mint and sweet spices resonate on the textured, inviting finish. The 2010 is unusually voluptuous for the year. Readers should give the 2010 another few years for the French oak to integrate. Giorgio Pelissero's wines have a way of coming together in bottle. I expect that will be the case here as well. 2010 Barbaresco Nubiola 94, tasting notes: The 2010 Barbaresco Nubiola is impeccable. Dark red cherries, freshly cut flowers, mint and crushed rocks take shape in the glass. The style is focused, tense and energetic. Sweet floral, tobacco and spice notes develop in the glass, adding depth, complexity and nuance. The Nubiola often presents a fairly classic array of flavors and textures. The 2010 has a little more volume and depth than normal, which serves to round out some of the contours. A blast of fruit and floral aromatics leaves a lasting impression. 2010 Barbaresco Tulin 94, tasting notes: Pelissero's 2010 Barbaresco Tulin explodes from the glass with a head-spinning array of aromas and flavors. Rich, full-bodied and intense, the 2010 boasts stunning depth to match its racy, intense structure. Deeply spiced, mentholated notes saturate the full-bodied, voluptuous finish. The combination of fruit and structure is super exciting, to say the least. 2010 Langhe Rosso Long Now 94, tasting notes: Violets, mint, cinnamon, blackberries and blueberries inform the 2010 Long Now. In 2010 the Long Now is impeccably refined and nuanced, with less of the immediacy of the 2011, but with more than enough energy and vibrancy to sustain its intense black fruit. The 2010 could use another few years to come together, but it is striking, even today. This is another terrific 2010 from Giorgio Pelissero. Here below the link to the article: http://Vinousmedia

THE WINE ADVOCATE

01 July 2013

THE WINE ADVOCATE

Issue n. 207 June 2013 Giorgio Pelissero has a good amount of news to report from his corner of the Barbaresco appellation. He is putting the finishing touches on a new winery with extra room for storing old vintages. He is also about to announce the acquisition of four additional hectares that will bring his total vineyard holdings to an impressive 40 hectares (with 15 hectares of Nebbiolo in the Barbaresco denomination). Barbaresco Vanotu 2010: 94 points. The 2010 Barbaresco Vanotu is an extremely persuasive expression of Nebbiolo that opens to a dark, brooding color, thick concentration and an attractive dark garnet hue. The personality here is overtly savory and masculine with layers of cured meat and leather that support a wider offering of pressed cherries and tar. The generosity is outstanding. The only element out of place is the tannin that is spectacularly young at this point. This wine won�t show its best side for years more to come. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035. Barbaresco Tulin 2010: 93+ points. The 2010 Barbaresco Tulin shows sheer power and extra concentration that is noticeable both in terms of the wine�s darkened color and the beautiful intensity of its aromas. Opulent oak and spice are wrapped tightly around a solid core of dark cherry and pressed blackberry. The tannins are clearly on the astringent side, but the aging window here promised to be extra long. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030. Barbaresco Nubiola 2010: 91 points. The 2010 Barbaresco Nubiola is a well-priced wine that delivers a beautiful and subdued appearance with bright garnet and ruby highlights. The feminine, but profound bouquet shows tones of pressed blue flower, cherry, wild berry and dark spice. The wine drinks young at this stage and promises a steady evolution thanks to the natural freshness of the acidity and the astringent youthfulness of the tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
