Roero Arneis D.O.C.G.

Roero Arneis d.o.c.g is made from Arneis grapes, a white, indigenous grape variety, that has existed in the area since 15th century. The Cornarea winery was the first one to invest in the effort of saving this species of vine that, at the beginning of the 70s, had almost disappeared. Its disappearance was due to the difficulty of producing Arneis wine without adequate technologies, in fact in Piedmontese the word Arneis means naughty boy. Nowadays Roero Arneis represents the strength and the deliverance of the wine-producing Roero area. 

The wine

Its extreme elegance immediately justifies the reasons why this original Piedmontese wine has been so successful.

Colour: straw yellow.

Bouquet: it has an original and intense aroma of white flowers and fruits such as pear, peach, pineapple and passion fruit.

Flavour: the same sensations appear again in the mouth, amplified by a full and harmonic taste deriving from its great structure. The Arneis full body and its persistence make this wine a unique one. The aftertaste is rich and mineral, thanks to the presence of magnesium, which is to be found abundantly in the Cornarea hill soil. It then blends with the body fruity taste, thus providing Roero Arneis Cornarea a well-balanced elegance.

Serving temperature: 10-12 degrees
