"Indigenous Grape Varieties: What's Behind Some of Italy's Most Popular Wines"
Comments from Wine experts Ed McCarthy & Mary Ewing Mulligan, authors of “WINE FOR DUMMIES” at "New York INTERNATIONAL Wine & Food Expo" at Lyndhurst Mansion, Tarrytown NY:
"How many of you have had an Erbaluce wine in your life? I would think none of you. Piedmont for us is Nirvana, like Heaven. Piedmont is of course home of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbara (wines). Italy also has this are in Northern Piedmont where the Swiss Alps are and just as you are coming down (from the Alps) the first area you reach is Erbaluce.
It is just... MAGNIFICENT... Because you are surrounded by the Alps on both sides and HERE they are making this white wine that you can find no where else in the world but Northern Piedmont... Erbaluce di Caluso"
