The grapes come from vineyards located on steep hills of the Roero, characterized by predominantly calcareous siliceous soils, particularly rich of quartz sands and clays mixed with fine thin and friable sandstone. On these soils, soft and permeable, provide an abundance of trace elements at the same time ensuring an immediate expression of the bouquet, the Arneis grape finds the ideal conditions for the expression of smells fresh and fragrant.
The vines are grown with Guyot (VSP trellised) system on hills with steep inclines.
Grapes are collected exclusively by hand, quickly brought to the cellar for destalking and soft pressing to extract from the peel and the outer area of the grape only the most noble and aromatic fractions and the must obtained is immediately separated placed at low temperature at 20° C. (68° F.) in stainless steel tanks or cement tanks to preserve the freshness and typical fragrant aromas. The long stay on the yeast makes this long-lived wine, able to evolve after uncorking and still in the glass.
The color is yellow straw, sometimes with a antique gold hues. The scent is fruity, with clean scents of acacia flowers, rennet apples, peach and green hazelnut. The taste is fresh, fragrant, softly mineral.
It goes well with traditionally delicate appetizers but intense flavors like veal with tuna sauce, the sufflè, pasta with vegetables, rice salads, white meat stewed, boiled or baked. It is also perfect for raw or marinated fish.
