This wine is made from Arneis grapes grown on the Bosio Estate in the Roero region (which is in the Southeastern part of Piedmont, close to Turin, in the foothills of the Alps). It starts with a clean, floral nose, with captivating hints of pineapple, apricot and peach that follow through to the palate and refreshing finish.
The Arneis grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in Canale village, at 200 to 400 ft. above sea level. The average age of the vines is 20 years and they are grown on southeast- and southwest- facings in sandy soil, at a density of about 5,000 plants per hectare. After harvesting, the grapes spend 24 hours at low temperature in contact with skin to increase the complexities of the aroma, then they are pressed and the must is fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The wine spends five months in contact with its own yeasts after fermentation. There is a final three months ageing in bottle before shipping.
This wine is a perfect accompaniment to white meats like chicken and pork, as well as fish and savory vegetable dishes.
