Erbaluce is a crisp white grape varietal grown in
hills of North-eastern Piemonte
since 1606, exclusively in 33 municipalities around the town of Caluso. Erbaluce
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
reference to the roasted slopes where the grapes of these remarkably fresh and balanced white
Erbaluce di Caluso is characteristically dry, with
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.
