Notes from Rosenthal Wine Merchant:

Luigi Ferrando has long been the leading producer of wines from the Canavese region where his family’s winemaking tradition goes back to 1900. Like many of our producers, he has strong ties to his local region. His attachment and commitment run deep, and have led him to collaborate with other wine growers and academics. Together, they are responsible for discovering and preserving local grape varieties and traditions that might otherwise have been lost. Luigi’s sons, Roberto and Andrea, now work with him on the estate (Roberto) and in the family’s vinoteca (Andrea) located in the heart of the city of Ivrea, the commercial hub of the Canavese region. Thus, the continuation of the Ferrando tradition has been enabled.

Grown here since Roman times, a typical Erbaluce is crisp, clean, fresh and easy.  This is NOT "typical," in that it's nicely rich in texture and loaded with layer upon layer of ripe stone fruit laced with mountain herb and grated ginger root.  Finishes long and mouthwatering with hints of marzipan and peach and herb. A fantastic cool-weather white.
