Verduno Pelaverga o Verduno Doc

Disciplinare
This wine is produced in just a few hectares of vineyards to the west of Alba, in Verduno. It was originally vinified in the cellars of Verduno Castle where King Carlo Alberto also performed his enological experiments on Barolo grapes during the 19th century.

Used as an adjunct in blends with other varieties of grapes for many generations, it has been vinified alone now for several decades, quickly acquiring many fans – at more than local level. With its fragrant and aromatic perfumes, it is much appreciated by many wine experts, especially those who love rarities and are constantly looking for something original and stimulating. It possesses a delicate ruby colour with highlights that range from violet to cerise and a fine balance of acidity and tannins that render it gracious and fresh to the palate while maintaining a good structure. It needs to be drunk young when the flowery and fruity notes, including violets and cherries, are at their best. After moderate ageing spicier notes including white and green pepper can be appreciated.
