Yellow straw color. Aromas of peach pie, sliced bananas in creme, fresh herbs, and jasmine with a satiny, crisp, fruity light body and a graceful, medium-length ripe mango and pineapple, toasted pound cake, minerals, and roasted nuts finish with moderate oak flavor. A rich, buttery Italian white.

Piedmont Other White

Wine Glass White.jpg
Serve in a White Wine Glass
Other white wines from Piedmont include Favorita, Timorasso and Erbaluce. The first is a rather simple white with delicate pear and citrus flavors; dry, it is rather simple and had good acidity. Only a few producers make anything special with Favorita; drink young as an aperitif or with light seafood.

Timorasso is a specialty white from the province of Alessandria. Medium-full with intense aromas of dried pear, grapefruit along with notes of flint, this is a powerful, singular white with great minerality. This is a white than can easily age for a decade. Pair with shellfish, rich seafood and white meats such as chicken and pork.

Erbaluce is produced in northern Piemonte around the town of Caluso. Medium- to medium-full on the palate, Erbaluce is made in various styles, from in oaked and dry to barrel aged to lush dessert wine. A typical Erbaluce has complex aromas of rosemary, sage and lemon rind and is meant to be paired with risotto, lighter seafood and lighter poultry. Aging potential depends on the style of wine; lighter, steel-aged versions are meant to be consumed within three to five years, while richer versions can drink well for seven to ten years.
