Mario's of Pelassa winery is a red wine made from Barbera, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. After the harvest in mid-September/October, the winemaking process takes place in about about 7/8 days at 26-27 °C. After de-stemming and soft pressing of the grapes, the must is pumped over on a dèlastage way to improve the extraction of the colour and the varietal aromas. The malolactic fermentation is done in steel tanks just after harvest time.
Mario's Rosso has a ruby red colour with violet shades; fruity, fragrant, persistent bouquet with suggestion of cherry, redcurrant and apricot. Soft and persistent taste, full bodied, well balanced and round taste; this is a classy wine.

"In April 1950, I was not yet ten years old. We were six brothers, my mother was gone and our family was very modest. Then, I realized that it was time to help out, so one morning I got up early, tapped some flasks of Nebbiolo, I took the bike, cycling towards Turin... a man suggested me to go to Superga hill, where I would find people who could appreciate the valuable thing I was carrying with me... I still remember the expression of awe, as generous and elegant could be a wine.
