Grape Erbaluce

Rovellotti encapsulates all the richness of one of Piedmont's historic grape varieties in this bottle. In fact, Erbaluce is the historical heritage of the Piedmontese hills. The first news of this vine dates back to 1606, when the jeweller of Charles Emmanuel II, Giovanni Battista Croce, mentioned it in his book "Della eccellenza e diversità dei vini che della Montagna di Torino si fanno" (On the excellence and diversity of the wines made in the mountains of Turin), writing "Erbalus is a white grape, so called as alba luce (dawn light) because it shines with white light: it has round, dense and abundant grains, it has a hard shell or peel: when ripe, it becomes roasted and coloured and remains on the plant for a long time".

Harvest at the end of September, pressing and racking after about 12 hours resting on the skins, limpidification process done with selected enzymes, resulting in slow fermentation done at a controlled temperature of 20°C in stainless steel. Bottling period in January of the year.

This wine gives pleasant impressions right from its colour, whose straw-yellow, almost intense and brilliant colour is reminiscent of the sun's rays penetrating the vines. A complex bouquet that leaves you speechless, with a subtle hint of hay, rue and field grasses, basil, hawthorn, plums and exotic fruit. Dry flavour, refined and elegant body, savoury, balanced and intense, long persistence.

Foodpairing: fish, cured meats, grilled veal and chicken. Also excellent for aperitifs.
