The Arneis grapes for Le Madri 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, with very good drainage. Fruit is hand harvested and soft pressed, then undergoes controlled temperature fermentation to maintain the aromas. The wine spends three months on fine lees within stainless steel vats.

2020 vintage
Harvest Note
The 2020 vintage began with a winter season with mild temperatures and little rainfall. The first part of spring was relatively dry and sunny, and March and April enjoyed good weather and mild temperatures. In May, an unstable climate recorded a considerable number of rainy days, lasting until late June. This slowed down vegetative development but allowed for an accumulation of water in the ground. It was a generally abundant vintage, although thinning brought quantities back to normal. Overall, the climate was ideal, with a final sprint of bright days and excellent temperature range between day and night from mid-August to late September, conditions that characterize great vintages.
Tasting Note
Intense straw yellow with brilliant green hues, the wine presents notes of peach, tropical fruits, and acacia flower with an enjoyable savory finish.
