2019 Olek Bondonio Rosso di Giulietta Pelaverga
Olek Bondonio makes an old fashioned kind of wine. So while most of his contemporaries around the town of Barbaresco continue to focus on the more commercially successful grapes of the region, Olek sometimes goes his own way.
Sometimes he chooses to make a wine from the rare Pelaverga from one of the best crus in all of Barbaresco – where anyone else would grow Nebbiolo. Grown in his is Roncagliette vineyard, his Pelaverga is a light, bright and fragrant wine with plenty of charm. It has the characteristic flavours of wild strawberries and white pepper, but thanks to this great terroir, comes with some fine little tannins to boot. It's a very special wine.
