Consignment Wines

Nokhrin is a family-owned wine agency with whom many winecurrent subscribers have developed a relationship after reading winecurrent reviews, ordering and receiving wine delivered to their home or office. Alex Nokhrin dropped by the other day with winery owner Daniele Pelassa, visiting from Piedmonte, Italy, and we tasted the following wines. It’s an opportunity to try wine from a family-owned producer from Piedmonte that are not, yet, available in LCBO stores, but available to you through ‘Private Order’ or ‘Consignment’. Private Orders usually take six to eight weeks for delivery. Read more here….

Pelassa ‘San Vito’ Roero Arneis 2011 

DOCG Roero Arneis, Italy $21.35 13.0% alcohol
Arneis is a white indigenous grape of Piedmonte. Due to complexity and its tony neighbourhood, it’s also known as Barolo Bianco. Tropical fruit, floral notes and citrus zest on the nose, it delivers a stunning wash of beautifully balanced flavour—succulent white peach, ripe pear and green apple interlaced with minerality and racy, lip-smacking lemon tang. It’s mid weight with generous mouth feel and mouth-watering finish.

Pelassa ‘Bricco Enrichetta’ Langhe 2011 

DOC Langhe, Italy $16.65 14.0% alcohol
Aromas of mixed spice, lilac and dark, mixed field berry open this approachable red blend—an even split between Barbera and Nebbiolo. It makes a balanced, soft landing on the palate with a smooth and mellow wash of racy, lip-smacking red cherry mingling with sweet, ripe briary berry. Mid weight and silky smooth, it finishes in a blaze of mouth-watering zing and tang. Perfect as an aperitif to get the gustatory juices active, it also pairs well with pasta in tomato sauce, pizza or seafood/chorizo paella.
