Light gold in colour, the 2008 Erbaluce is fresh and lively on the nose, with perfumes of mountain flowers and a touch of honey.

On the palate it is dry and clean, with a lovely minerality on the palate.

Sheltered by the Alps, Lessona did not undergo eolic erosion, so its sandy, acidic soil, with a pH of 4.5 - 5.5, is very well drained. In these conditions, the vines put down deep roots in search of the mineral nutrients they require. The climate is dry with wonderful light, and cool night breezes blowing from the Alps to the north mitigate the hot summer days. This in turn ensures a long growing season.

Erbaluce di Caluso is an old traditional variety native to Piemonte but rarely seen outside Italy. The vines are planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare, 300m above sea level and trained using a traditional pergola system called 'pergola canavesana'.

The grapes were hand picked in the second half of September. The grapes were pressed immediately on arrival at the winery. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. A small portion of the must was macerated on the skins at low temperatures and then blended with the rest. No malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place. After a period of ageing on the fine lees, the wine was bottled.
