This vintage spumante, from family run winery Pelassa, is made from the Arneis grapes. Arneis is typically a high acid grape, so they fermented a third of the grapes in whole bunches to provide more texture to balance the wine. It still maintains a youthful brightness with notes of lemon, almond, and a salty minerality. Enjoy with shellfish or pop open for any celebration!

To provide for his family, Mario Pelassa would bicycle 60 km to Torino and 60km back to try to sell wine in the city.

Since the 2000s, Pelassa Winery has been taken over by Mario's sons, Davide and Daniele.

Piedmont translates literally to "Foot of the Mountains" in this case, the Alps. The region has many parallels to Burgundy, vineyards handed down through generation, increasing demand paired with increasing price. The top grape of the region is Nebbiolo, labelled regionally as Barolo, Barbaresco or Langhe Nebbiolo. The wines that require long term aging reward time in the cellar, while you are waiting for them to mature, enjoy regional wines of Barbera or Dolcetto.
