Winemaker Notes

The Dolcetto Munfrina is one of the finest Dolcetti produced in Italy today. The wine is supple and solid with huge extracted fruit that melts over the palate like milk chocolate from a chocolate chip cookie just out of the oven. The raspberry, dark cherry, tobacco, and lavender flavors are soft and mature with a velvety quality that can only be described as elegance in a bottle. Luscious and thick, bold and powerful, complex and balanced, full of bright young fruit and still brimming with a multi- faceted character seldom achieved with this grape varietal. This wine is truly a wonder of winemaking. It is the perfect partner for a variety of dishes ranging from heavier fowl, light and dark meats, stew, rabbit, venison, wild boar, red-sauced pasta, pizza and even with rich cheese and bread.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Dolcetto d'Alba Munfrina is a beautiful bottle of wine. This is Pelissero's more traditional Dolcetto. The marriage of firm, tense structure and the warmth of the vintage make for a wonderfully complete, harmonious wine. Varietal dark fruit, tobacco, new leather and licorice linger on the firm, nuanced finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.

Pelissero, Italy
Pelissero Vineyards covered by snow during winter Winery Image

Azienda Agricola Pelissero is a family-run vine-growing estate located in the district of Treiso, in the heart of the Barbaresco zone. Many gradual changes have been performed by the successive generations of the Pelissero family, who transformed their business from grape growing and selling begun by Giovanni Pelissero, into winemaking of all their estate-grown grapes.

The first bottles of our own wine date back to 1960 and were produced by Luigi Pelissero, whose work was followed by his son, Oenologist Giorgio who after finishing his studies, decided to work full time at the winery. The Pelissero family takes care of all the winery work; from pruning the vines to marketing the wine.

The estate consists of twenty hectares of vineyards which yield a total of 80,000 to 100,000 (depending on the year) bottles of wine, namely Dolcetto d'Alba from two vineyards (Munfrina and Augenta), Barbera d'Alba Piani, Barbaresco, Barbaresco Vanotu, Grignolino, Favorita,Freisa and Nebbiolo.

It takes passion, commitment to the land and hard work in the vineyards and cellar, to always endeavour to make high quality wines, the only way we know to get real satisfaction. Research in the vineyards and, successively, in the cellar never stops here, and we hope that this will bring about further improvements on our wines.

An historic village situated right in between the famous regions of Barolo and Barbaresco, Alba is also the name for the larger wine region surrounding the village.

In a sense, “Alba” is a catch-all phrase, and includes the declassified Nebbiolo wines made in Barolo and Barbaresco, as well as the Nebbiolo grown just outside of these regions’ borders. In fact, Nebbiolo d’Alba is a softer, less tannic and more fruit-forward wine ready to drink within just a couple years of bottling. It is a great place to start if you want to begin to understand the grape. Likewise, the even broader category of Langhe Nebbiolo offers approachable and value-driven options as well.

Barbera, planted alongside Nebbiolo in the surrounding hills, and referred to as Barbera d’Alba, takes on a more powerful and concentrated personality compared to its counterparts in Asti.

Dolcetto is ubiquitous here and, known as Dolcetto d'Alba, can be found casually served alongside antipasti on the tables of Alba’s cafes and wine bars.

Not surprisingly, given its location, Alba is recognized as one of Italy’s premiere culinary destinations and is the home of the fall truffle fair, which attracts visitors from worldwide every year.
