Fratelli Alessandria Verduno Pelaverga 2015
N-AR31009

Another Italian heirloom grape (like Arneis and Teroldego) saved from extinction by dedicated vinegrowers, Pelaverga is unique to the small town of Verduno. The Alessandrias found it so well-received they went from making it for themselves and their friends to bottling it for the rest of the world. We’re glad they did, because we find it delicious, easy to drink, and extremely versatile with food. Light in body, a pleasing transparent garnet in the glass, with a nose of cherries and spice with a light sprinkling of pepper, it’s a pleasant little wine with plenty of length and intensity in an unassuming package. Subtle and multifarious on the palate, it shows red cherry, currant, and red raspberry sliding over spicy tannins and a touch of earth and cedar. With lip-smacking acidity, it’s lovely by itself, but pairs with a wide range of foods.

Pairing: Start by staying in northern Italy: mushroom risotto, spaghetti Bolognese, or salmon with a walnut-parsley pesto.
