The Erbaluce di Caluso 'Le Chiusure' from the family-run Benito Favaro winery is distinguished by its nect mineral character. At the helm of the winery, we find Camillo Favaro, supported by his father Benito, mother Rosanna, sister Elena and brother-in-law Claudio, in a close-knit family context that takes care of fewer than 4 hectares of vineyards located in Piverone, on the Serra d'Ivrea, the largest moraine relief in all of Europe. Erbaluce represents the estate's symbolic grape variety, and 'Le Chiusure' was the first label produced by the Favaro family.

Benito Favaro Erbaluce di Caluso 'Le Chiusure' is a pure Erbaluce from vines trained on the Canavese pergola system on sandy soils rich in pebbles, located between 350 and 400 meters above sea level. After harvesting, the clusters undergo 24-30 hours of cryomaceration, after which the grapes are softly pressed, and the subsequent alcoholic fermentation must take place. Once the fermentation process is concluded, the mass is racked into wooden barrels to mature for at least 6 months on the fine lees, a period during which the wine is enriched with structure and aromas.

On visual inspection, 'Le Chiusure' Erbaluce di Caluso di Benito Favaro expresses a straw yellow hue with greenish reflections. The nose begins with fruity scents of papaya, white peach and apple, followed by hints of citrus and white flowers, nuances of hazelnut and almond, as well as decisive mineral puffs. Full and balanced flavour progression, armed with acute freshness and pleasant savoriness. The persistent finish insists on floral and dried fruit sensations. An Erbaluce of exquisite refinement that is a splendid match for creamy risottos or elaborate seafood preparations.
