2020 Ercole Monferrato Bianco: Piedmont, Italy


Tasting Notes

Wonderful nose of orchard fruit, such as peaches, pears, and nectarines. Merge the aromatics with the palate, adding pineapple, sweet citrus fruits, and hints of minerals. This 1L bottle is a summer crusher!

Winery Details

Weston Hoard and his British Labrador, Ercole, spent years working together in the vineyards and cellars of Piedmont. Fate would have it that they would one day be separated. This wine is a tribute to Weston's dependable four-legged companion in Italy. It also represents a rare opportunity to experience several traditional grapes of Piedmont at one incredible price. Both Ercole Bianco and Barbera were borne out of Weston's desire to bring everyday value wines from Piedmont to America. Uniquely packaged in one-liter bottles, this wine is made from grapes found in the historic region of Monferrato.
