Honeyed, riper golden/copper expression of Erbaluce. Likely representative of this Alto Piemonte DOC, but the bottle age had a big influence on this wine. We've had a neighboring young Erbaluce from Boca (Barbaglia) that was a completely different animal. Still, the acid is there in this 2012, and it balances the tropical notes beautifully.

Loving this little Piedmontese gem. A new grape for me...Erbaluce. Apple, minerals, herbs and flowers, and just a touch of petrol. Really conveys a sense of place!

An excellent vintage for Ferrando's Erbaluce. Petrol, silken, and full wet hay and stewed thyme with typical northern Piemontese acid to balance. Really lovely.

Golden copper. Light nose of orchard fruits and fennel. Slightly round. Nuanced but layered. First time with erbaluce.

I like this vintage. Soapy almond paste and bruised pears, weird fun spiky mineral midpalate. I want to find this wine's perfect pairing.

May be going over the edge a bit, but damn, it's still delicious.
