Winemaker's Notes

Exclusively from the Erbaluce grape. As are all the grapes in the Ferrando lineup, the Erbaluce is hand-harvested. Harvest usually occurs in late September. This cuvee is fermented and aged in stainless steel. The vineyards are situated in and around the village of Caluso in the heart of the Canavese district known for its many lakes and the hillside vineyards which overlook them.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Erbaluce di Caluso La Torrazza is rich and honeyed in the glass. Apricot, flowers and spices blossom in a rich, beautifully textured white loaded with class and personality. The oily, resonant finish is quite striking. "
