"From vineyards planted in Massara and Olmi in Verduno totalling around 1.6ha on white limestone soils, this Pelaverga is aged for nine months in stainless steel and three months in bottle. It's a touch jammier in aroma than Fratelli Alessandria's Speziale, and the palate is similarly ripe and sweet in character. It has intense strawberry and cherry fruits backed by some textural weight. It's delightfully fresh, yet a plumper, riper expression." 90 points (2018 vintage), Decanter
