Another Nebbiolo hit suggestion from the Italian master, Guido, from K & L San Francisco! Pepper, currant, spice, fresh red fruit... Paired with sausage ragout.

I love this! Super fresh, red fruit, spice, minerality and generous acid. What's not to love! Pelaverga is awesome!

Truly: fresh as a daisy w/ all the typical pelaverga notes intact plus another layer of crushed leaf and tobacco. If you're drinking gamay, poulsard, and trousseau and you don't treat Castello di Verduno Pelaverga w/ similar reverence, you're cheating yourself. What a pleasure to drink this at the estate.

Quaffable fruit, flowers, mineral, peppercorn. Structured, transparent depth in uplifting frame. Give me more of this during summer, or any season.
