Pasquale Pelissero Dolcetto d'Alba Crosa 2015
Before us, "Cascina Crosa" belonged to a noble family in Neive, Conti Cocito. It is an historic property, then and now, located in the heart of Neive's best vineyards. Winemaking has always been important for us. My father, Pasquale loved deeply his vineyards and his work in the cellar. He's one of the first wineries in Neive to make the leap to focasing on quality rather than bulk wine prodution, very common in those days. We base our work on the belief that great wine can only be made in the vineyard, therefore we invest an enormous amount of time tending to our vines, by hand, one vine at a time, this is why we only make wine from our own grapes... Vineyard: 30 years old vineyard in the village of Neive at about 400 mt above sea level. Vinification: soft pressing, temperature controlled alcohol fermentation for 8 days. Aging: aged in stainless steel tanks for 3 months before bottling.
