Pelassa Barolo San Lorenzo di Verduno 2015
This wine should be $70 but I stumbled into a rare situation and bought it from someone going out of business at a lower price.
A prestigious wine, known for aging well- if you have the patience. However, this one is ready to start drinking now.
Grape variety: 100% Nebbiolo
After the malolactic fermentation the wine is matured in Slavonian and French wooden casks and barrels with weekly topping up, tastings and analyses to make sure the wine is developing correctly.
Ageing: 4 years, 2 years in tonneaux and 12 months in stainless steel before bottling.
Characteristics: very velvety and elegant tannins, the Barolo San Lorenzo shows the typical finesse of the village of Verduno with scent of spices and roses.
Very powerful it has a great ageing potential if stored in good conditions.
Food pairing: excellent with grilled red meats, meats cooked on the spit; “haute cuisine” white and red meats with white and dark sauces. Superb with truffle.
Will benefit from decanting.
Awards: Robert Parker The Wine Advocate - James Suckling - IWC International Wine Challenge.
