The Orsolani family have been running this cellar for four generations, since 1894. They have always been keen producers of Erbaluce, which now accounts for the lion’s share of their production. Their flagship label is la Rustia, a wine produced with 100% erbaluce grapes, a fine expression of how the variety can be vinified: characterised by classic vegetal notes on the nose, the flavour typical of the local area on the palate and good length, it’s a white that is easy to pair with food. Also made solely with erbaluce grapes, Vintage ferments spontaneously in oak barrels: a great wine, more than classical ones it evokes lovely notes of honey and dried fruit. Albeit atypical for the area, it’s an extremely interesting white that reveals all the cellar’s winemaking skill. The metodo classico, Brut Cuvée, has very spicy green notes and goes well not only with fish but also with the typical local charcuterie. The excellent Sulé is a passito of pronounced colour that offers the nose notes of dried fruit, apricot and chestnut honey.
