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.
Wine Notes: At their best, wines made from the native grape variety Cortese boast a serious yet pleasing weight, pronounced minerality, and beautiful acidity. In fact, the Cortese-based wines of nearby Gavi are among the most treasured whites of Northern Italy. We have discovered that adding a touch of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc further sharpens and thereby elevates this wine. Fun fact: Cortese was first documented in 1614, when the Castle of Casale Monferrato documented the grape in its ledger.
