2016 Cieck Ingenuus Erbaluce di Caluso DOCG ~ White Wine
Natural - orange style wine
100% Erbaluce grapes from San Giorgio Canavese, just northeast of Turin in Piedmont.
Spontaneous fermentation utilising indigenous yeasts. Maceration on skins for approximately six days. 24 months fining in used oak barrels. An unfiltered, natural wine.
It has a beautiful golden colour. Warm bouquet with notes of honey and vegetal hints. Structured, full palate, light tannins, and with a final almond note.
This is perfect with Piedmont-style dishes such as ‘Bagna Cauda’ but is extremely versatile with white meat, vegetarian dishes, and aged cheeses.
- About The Producer
The Cieck Estate was founded by Remo Falconieri in 1985 and is located in San Giorgio Canavese, Piedmont, between the towns of Turin and Ivrea.
They mainly grow Erbaluce, an ancient local white grape in addition to other native varieties such as Nebbiolo, Barbera, Neretto, and Freisa.
The land originated from the Balteo Glacier, which dragged soils rich in numerous minerals down from Valle d’Aosta. Consequently a variety of minerals can be found in the wines grown here and is its characterising feature.
