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 autumn-winter season began with heavy rains in November and moderate snowfall in December, followed by a month of January that has been quite dry up until early February, which has seen a couple of snowfalls. The situation has enabled the formation of a great water reserve that has proved to be precipitous in the summer. The following months of February and March have seen mild and dry weather; but such condition has changed for the months of April and May, marked by abundant rains that re-balanced the vegetation of the vines, which formed disparate buds between the higher and the lower parts of the hills. May and June have been hot and dry, registering temperatures above the average for a brief period of time. The unusual and abundant rain at the beginning of July has definitely contributed to favoring gradual maturation that followed the conventional times of an outstanding vintage, however a somewhat poor harvest has been registered for some varieties. White wines are well-structured, harmonious with ideal level of acidity and aroma intensity, thus promising an excellent vintage.
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.
