Le Madri Roero Arneis DOCG 2018 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 start to the 2018 growing season in Piedmont was characterized by constant rainfall, which led to a cooler spring. This delayed the bud break by 20-25 days. Mid-summer saw strong hailstorms, damaging areas in Barbaresco & Roero. Summer concluded with a wide array of weather patterns – beautiful days with warm temperatures turning to cooler temperatures and thunderstorms. These factors led to a decline in quantity but the quality of the grapes did not suffer.

tasting note

Intense straw yellow with brilliant green hues. On the nose it presents yellow fruit with predominant notes of peach, tropical fruits and acacia flower. In the mouth it has a soft, persistent attack with a enjoyable savory finish.

food pairing

Pairs well with light, delicate dishes. Both sea and vegetable based starter dishes. Vegetable based risotto and pasta, shell fish and fish in general.
