Lux Lucis…. of Caluso

Erbaluce, novelty and tradition Piedmont is not only Nebbiolo. The erbaluce manages to give luster to a niche of winemakers who produce whites from long evolutions. The rebirth of certain wines passes through the rehabilitation of some vines that, left almost in oblivion, today, with the revaluation of the "autochthonous, are able to emerge from the Italian ampelographic panorama. So we arrived at the cellar of the Serra, welcomed by the young Vittorio, we can see what today the Millenials would call the ashtag of a revaluation, a revival not without sacrifices. Yes, because the history of Erbaluce, especially the one vinified in the dry variant has very distant origins. We must really go back in time, when the tradition of viticulture in Italy, as well as in all of Europe, was straight from our ancestors Agrioltori, who used this historic beverage after the toils of a long day spent in the fields. The similarities with the regionality of our territory begin to multiply, a clear sign that our history is generated by a single strain and that, thanks to the evolution, has been complexed in more sfaccettaturem all daughters of a single temporal matrix. The Erbaluce is in Piedmont, like the greenery in Puglia or as the Paramban in Liguria, rather than the pecorino Abruzzo. All vines that, at a certain point in their history, or for fashion or gratitude towards them have found themselves the object of the revaluation Ampelographic Italiana, and in some cases, considered niche. Those wines that were once the customary table wines of the artisan of the place, today have become of it. An awakening of citric sensations pours into the palate, already from the first drink. Sensations of a particularly long freshness for a drinkable wine widen out of proportion along the tongue; They unravel to dry the taste buds. A citrus fruit in the mouth would be the synthesis of a sensation, perhaps reductive, of wine tasting; Moreover, one can see a ammandorlata freshness, veiled, as well as the flowers in the background, fresh, wet and genuine, like a wine of long experience, like our craftsmen of the past, even those of Piedmont who appreciated these Wonderful beverages in their daily lives. Lux, Lucis with Erbaluce.
