Ascheri. Pelaverga di Verduno 'do ut des'
Pelaverga di Verduno DOC
Cherry, caramel, a dusting of sweet tannins, popcorn and strawberry to blueberry. A very different style to any Pelaverga that I have tasted. 14%
Pelaverga is the name of the grape, it is an oddity of Verduno and only a handful of producers make this wine. Matteo, keen to keep the vine in use, wasn?t sure what to do with his small plantings so opted to make a wine whose profits go entirely to charity: ?Do ut Does?, which roughly means, do as you would have done unto you.
There are only 3,500 bottles made and nearly all of it is sold in Ascheri?s fantastic Osteria in Bra.
