The grapes used by Elisa and Claudia Pozzo for this passito wine are carefully selected from those most exposed to the sun, which therefore have a higher sugar content. The harvested grapes are left to dry in wooden crates, allowing the berries to dry out and concentrate the sugar.
Erbaluce lends itself particularly well to making great raisin wines, as its skin is thick and thus allows good preservation of the berry during the drying process and the formation of noble molds within it. The aging of “L’Arbat” takes place in small wooden barrels for a minimum time of 6 years. A real gem not to be missed.
The color is the magnificent bright amber that characterizes great dessert wines.
On the nose it is intense and elegant, notes of honey and dried fruit are clearly perceived, with the aromas persisting for a long time.
The flavor is sweet and harmonious, with a hint of that very slight acidity typical of Erbaluce.
At the table, its unusual acid note combined with the sweetness typical of dessert wines makes it possible to venture some original pairings. It goes very classically with after-dinner desserts, dry pastries and hazelnut desserts; to end a special dinner in style, on the other hand, we recommend a board of aged and blue cheeses accompanied by a glass of “L’Arbat.”
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in saying that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it brings to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging, and at the same time we cannot risk damaging the precious Italian culinary jewels in any way.That is why our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation, and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cured meats and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use a special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
