Fileura is a white wine made from 50-year-old vines 100% Erbaluce from pergola terraces at an altitude of 300 to 600 metres. This release is a blend of 2019 and 2020. In 2019, the grapes were hand-picked and sorted in late September. After gentle bruising with the feet, the must was pressed with a traditional manual press. After a night of natural settling in a stainless steel tank, the must was transferred to a small glass-fibre tank for spontaneous fermentation. Further ageing took place in a stainless steel tank on fine lees without malolactic fermentation. In 2020, the grapes were only harvested in late October and again gently crushed with their feet. After settling in tank, the wine went into a small glass-fibre tank for spontaneous fermentation and then matured in an oak barrel on fine lees with periodic batonage, again without malo.
The two wines were blended in the summer of 2021 and bottled in September 2021, resulting in only 582 bottles. It is a very fine, subtle, dry wine with only 12% alc.and 7g/l acidity. This wine will certainly have a positive evolution in botlle.

Carema is a very small area, the vineyards cover a total of barely 16ha … Deborah and Federico have only just started in this highest part of Piedmont, just across the border from Aosta Valley. In this bucolic landscape they manage 1.50 hectares of old vineyards in pergola. These are spread over just 50 different plots, most of which can only be reached on foot or by donkey! Vinification is modern, but with respect for the traditions.
