Torraccia del Piantavigna “Erbavoglio” Colline Novaresi Bianco DOC
100% Erbaluce. Pale straw-yellow with greenish hues and fruity, fragrant notes of citrus. Fresh-tasting and pleasant with a dry, clear, finish.
The use of low-temperature stabilization allows us to extract the unique fresh grassy notes of this varietal. The relatively high acidity combined with some residual sugar gives for a slight sweetness on the palate but a pleasantly dry finish. A wine which respects the local tradition but very appealing
“The underlying phylosophy of the winery is to make wines that exalt the natural properties of the grape, exploiting the cooler climate of the foothills of the alps to produce wines of elegance. Wood is used sparingly and almost exclusively medium to large casks to not mask the wines natural characteristics. ”
