2016 Cieck San Giorgio Erbaluce di Caluso DOCG Brut Millesimato
100% Erbaluce. Made applying traditional Champagne making methods to Erbaluce grapes. On lees for 36 months. After a further bottle maturation of six months, it is ready to be uncorked.
Pale lemon with light-green tinges. Fine and persistent bubbles sustain a bright-white ethereal mousse. Fruity, with characteristic bread-crust aroma and rich with floral sensations. Full, harmonious, fresh, with good acidity but not sharp.
Excellent aftertaste, slightly aromatic, with the right persistence.
Perfect as an aperitif, excellent with an entire meal, especially with fish, shellfish, white meat and vegetables.

- 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.
