Denomination: Roero Arneis docg Variety: 100% Arneis Origin: Monteu Roero (CN) Alcohol: 12.5 % vol. Bottle Ageing: 6 months Description: “Arneis” in Piedmontese dialect means ‘mischievous child’ and perhaps this was true of the awkward antique vine “Arnesium”, which has been grown in the Roero since Mediaeval times, and later abandoned.
Colour: Straw-yellow with greenish highlights Bouquet: Intense and delicate with notes of fresh fruit, in particular apricot and peach as well as scents of woodland flowers and herbs such as sage. Taste: Pleasingly dry and intense with light mineral notes and a pleasant hint of bitter almond in the finish. Never overly acidic, but rather soft and balanced Food pairing: Aperitif and cold starters.
