ITALIAN FINE WHITE WINE
The Vinum Roero Arneis D.O.C.G. is a fine white wine, with grapes supplied by 25 year old vines. These vines are located on the hills at 300m above sea level with South West exposure.
During the 60’s only a few vines of Arneis survived the phylossera parasite, and as of today the Roero Arneis is the best white wine produced in the red wine’s land. The Arneis grape was cultivated in the Monferrato area since the Roman Empire. Some vines were raised right beside the Nebbiolo vines, in order to invite the birds to eat those succulent grapes and preserve the Nebbiolo’s ones.
Roberto does a meticulous selection of the best grapes first in the vineyard, then in the cellar. After a soft pressing the alcoholic fermentation starts, adding native organic yeasts in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16°C. Once the alcoholic fermentation is complete, the The Vinum Roero Arneis will age on the yeasts for several months in order to create a white wine with longevity.
