Orsolani Al Bacio Erbaluce di Caluso 2018
Erbaluce is an ancient indigenous grape variety from the hilly vineyards mainly located in the area of Caluso and San Giorgio, where the Orsolani winery is located. Straw yellow color, white peach, mandarin orange, sage on the nose, intriguing entrance on the palate, blossom in the mouth, with a nice mineral dry finish. The 2018 Al Bacio delivers pleasure right up front, with a lot of character, and will pair well with everything from seafood to light pasta and salads all summer long.
The history of the Orsolani winery began at the end of the nineteenth century, when Giovanni Orsolani and his wife Domenica returned from America. Domenica opened a restaurant, and Giovanni worked in the vineyard and in the cellar producing traditional Canavese wines. Four generations later, the family still focuses on classic, organic farming; and are champions of the grape that made the Canavese famous: Erbaluce.
