Varietal: 100% Arneis

From select vineyards in the villages of Vezza d’Alba, Monteu Roero, Santo Stefano Roero, Canale, Monta in Piemonte, Italy, this indigenous white varietal was fermented in 100% stainless steel for 15 days. No malo. Further matured for 4 months in stainless steel vats and then 1 month in bottle before release.

Tasting note:

Straw coloured with greenish glints. The bouquet is complex and yellow apple, peach and apricot notes. On the palate, it is fresh, full-bodied, with mineral notes and a persistent finish.

Review:

The 2017 has not yet been renewed, but the 2016 vintage receive 92+ points from Wine Advocate.

“The 2016 Roero Arneis was bottled on Saint Valentine’s Day and that’s a fitting touch. Some 140,000 bottles were made, which is more than average. This is a fresh and buoyant wine that is loaded with tangy tropical fruit, pineapple and honeydew melon. The wine’s intensity is exuberant, pronounced and refreshing. Dustings of fine mineral and salty limestone characteristics give the wine a brilliant sense of polish and crispness. Bruna Giacosa tells me the fruit harvested in 2016 was beautiful. She distinctly remembers the perfumes of the Arneis grapes as they came into the winery on the back of a truck during harvest. This is a beautiful white wine. Drink 2017-2020.” - 92+ points (Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, Jun 30, 2017)
