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.

Harvest Note
The 2021 vintage began with rain and snow that piled up to 24 inches among the vineyards. March was dry with temperatures above average that prompted an early start of vegetation. Spring brought previous rainfall and below average temperatures that lasted until the end of May slowed the development of the vines. June was the beginning of a long, hot, and dry summer that lasted until a mild September. Harvest was at the usual time, yielding healthy and perfectly ripe grapes characterized by outstanding balance.
Tasting Note
Intense straw yellow with brilliant green hues, the wine offers notes of peach, tropical fruits, and acacia flower with an enjoyable savory finish.
Food Pairing
Vegetable-based risotto and pastas, seafood
