This wine draws on the remote past and is inspired by the book by G.B. Croce, a goldsmith, agronomist and oenologist. After having performed court offices, in Turin of Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia and Carlo Emanuele I, he wrote the essay in 1606.
“ Of the excellence and diversity of the wines that are made in the Mountain of Turin…”
From the chapter "The fate of the most excellent white and black grapes of the Mountain of Turin” we have taken the ways to make this wine by recovering a grape type now disappeared from the Canavese, which was the “Malvagia” (described in the text: long grapes, and thick, with long grains. It is good to eat and to make wine.) combining it with the Erbaluce.
This wine that tells a long history is almost an archaeological discovery that brings us back to the glories of the Savoy court of the late 1500s to the 1800s emigration of the Piedmontese to California where they brought the Malvasia Moscata with them. It is like taking a sip from an intriguing past.
