Erbaluce is a grape that was new to me.  It has a history in the Piedmont region dating back to 1606.  It is a very pretty wine with a deep golden color.  The nose has hay, white raisins, and a hint of lemon.  On the palate, this is full bodied.  The white raisin quality carries thru.  Almost like a dry dessert wine.  Maybe some oxidized apples as well.  It's enjoyable but more interesting than great.  It's not expensive.  No idea how long it ages but given that it is already five years, it's probably best to drink sooner than later.  Will work well with cheeses or even vegetarian pasta dishes.
