This Arneis grape is grown in the Roero, a small hillside area on the left bank of the Tanaro River, directly across from the Barbaresco zone, which is on the river's right bank. The soil is rich in calcareous marl and sand with traces of clay. It yields an excellent white wine of great elegance and delicacy, a variety only appreciated since the mid 1970s despite its much earlier origins. Straw yellow in colour with green highlights. Intense, generous and ample on the palate with appealing notes of linden, mint and apricot. Fresh and elegant,with a silky texture, fine balance and delicate finish. Best within 2-3 years of the vintage.
