Cieck

$52.60

750 ml

100% Erbaluce, a local grape from San Giorgio Canavese, just northeast of Turin, Piedmont

It is made following the traditional Champagne-making methods applied to Erbaluce grapes. It is on lees for 36 months. After a further bottle maturation of six months, it is ready to be uncorked!

It is pale lemon with light-green tinges. Fine and persistent bubbles sustain a bright-white ethereal mousse.

Fruity, with a characteristic bread-crust aroma and rich with floral sensations.

Full, harmonious, fresh, with good acidity but not sharp. It has an excellent aftertaste, slightly aromatic, with the right persistence. 

It is perfect as an aperitif, excellent with an entire meal, especially with fish, shellfish, white meat, and vegetables.

Awards:

2 Bicchieri Rossi Gambero Rosso

  • 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. A variety of minerals can be found in the wine grown here and is its characterising feature.
