Erbaluce is a crisp white grape varietal grown in the Canavese hills of North-eastern Piemonte since 1606, exclusively in 33 municipalities around the town of Caluso. Erbaluce takes its name from the goddess Albaluce, whose realm was Caluso.

Often called Greco, this varietal was thought to be a relative of Fiano, a white varietal from central and southern Italy. The name La Rustia is a reference to the roasted slopes where the grapes of these remarkably fresh and balanced white are grown.

Erbaluce di Caluso is characteristically dry, with reminiscent of meadow flowers and a distinguishable acidity. The well-rounded structure makes it an excellent partner to hors d’ oeuvre and fish, particularly tench (a freshwater fish) and marinated trout.

This is a wine I had on a special day with my special lady and it hasn't been easy to find here in Charlotte, NC. I'm ecstatic to have found it here!
