Favaro Erbaluce di Caluso 13
Erbaluce di Caluso DOCG

Grape  Erbaluce

 The name of the wine simply comes from the time that it spends in ‘egg’, thirteen months and the egg is made from concrete which is lined with an inert resin. 

The wine is made from the local Erbaluce, grown on the tiny south facing Vigna Cavaina vineyard (a third of a hectare) which is at an altitude of four hundred meters.  The soils are moraine with a high proportion of stones, the vines are trained using a traditional Trentino Pergola system.

The harvest is between the fifteen and twenty fifth of September, only selected fruit is used for this wine.  After a soft pressing the must is given just over a day of cold maceration, after which half the juice is racked off into a concrete ‘egg’.  The fermentation is with selected yeasts and the wine goes through a full malolactic conversion.
