Red Wines for Summer

It might be hard to believe, but summer is almost here


« Prev Next » 4 of 6

Piedmont is famous for famous wine. Its less famous wine? Well they’re not very famous! Pelaverga is one of the hidden gems; light bodied, peppery, bright and fresh with a wildly perfumed combination of pink peppercorn, red berry fruit and a little raspy minerality.

Pelaverga’s home is the sleepy village of Verduno, which has mostly escaped much attention from wine lovers in the USA, even though it is home to several wonderful producers. Pelaverga is a great wine to pair with game birds. Duck grilled rare, served rare is a lovely match here, especially when it’s served with a little ratatouille and some pasta with arugula pesto.

Two to try:

Castello di Verduno Pelaverga $20

G. B. Burlotto Pelaverga $20
