2019 Olek Bondonio Rosso Giulietta
This is made from the native Piedmontese variety Pelaverga.
Many years ago Olek’s relatives planted four rows of these vines in the Roncagliette vineyard, one of the finest cru of Barbaresco! In this wine 60% of the Pelaverga comes from here and 40% from younger vines in Altavilla. It is very pale in colour, especially in this vintage, but shows as per usual the distinctive peppery character along small red berry fruits and captivating minerality. Roughly 2 weeks maceration on skins (til the end of fermentation) in stainless steel.
