Aromatic, citrus with exotic fruit flavours
Another great Italian white wine, this time from Pelassa, a small family estate in Piedmont. Mario’s Bianco is a blend of two native grape varieties Arneis and Favorita with Chardonnay giving a lovely crisp white wine that is aged on its lees for a few months to add texture.
Delicate and aromatic with notes of white and yellow flowers on the nose with fresh citrus and exotic fruit flavours. Deliciously refreshing.
White, Dry | 75CL | 13.5% ABV
Food and Wine Pairing
Great with a goat’s cheese salad or seared pork fillets with your choice of veg!
About the Producer
Often referred to as the Burgundy of Italy, Piedmont has a reputation for fantastic small-scale, family owned wineries producing top quality wines. Pelassa certainly falls into this category.
Based in Montà d’Alba, Pelassa was founded in the 1950s by the late Mario Pelassa. At the age of just 10, Mario realised he needed to help out with the family fortunes. Literally taking the advice to ‘get on yer bike’, he poured out a few flasks of Nebbiolo and headed off to Turin on his bicycle…from these humble beginnings, this family winery was established. Today, his two sons Daniele and Davide continue with the family tradition and Pelassa has a great reputation for producing award-winning wines and is creating a bit of a stir in the wine world at the moment.
