Le Madri Roero Arneis DOCG 2016 play

Region: Italy / Piedmont / Roero
Grapes: 100% Arneis

The Arneis grapes come from Roero, a small hillside area on the left bank of the Tanaro River, directly across from the Barbaresco zone on the right bank. The soil is rich in calcareous marl and sand with traces of clay. Fruit is hand harvested and soft pressed, then undergoes controlled temperature fermentation to maintain the grapes’ fragrance.

harvest note

The beginning of winter was characterized by mild temperatures and low rainfall. This gave way to temperatures that were well below the average for the end of winter. The spring saw heavy rains that did not create phytopathological damages but provided water reserves in the soil which proved invaluable during the long summer. During the ripening period, there wasn't persistent rain but sporadic thunderstorms from mid-August to late September. The storms encouraged the development of important aromas in perfectly healthy grapes with particularly thick skins. All of these elements allowed for the 2016 season to produce wines of great caliber.

tasting note

This straw-yellow wine has intense aromas of white flowers, mint and apricot. On the palate it is fresh and elegant, with a silky texture and fine acidity.

food pairing

Pairs well with hors d’oeuvres and cold cuts, poultry and vegetarian appetizers and simply prepared seafood.
