The story behind the wine… : the Arneis grape, before knowing its great success, was considered a wine of little importance; at times despised. Even today, for somebody, Arneis wine is an “low importance” white wine, often associated with other Italian varieties.

Arneis is UNIQUE and it should be enhanced more. By tasting our interpretation that, you may like or you may not like, you will understand something more about this grape variety;  not born to be an easy-to-appreciate wine. A sincere, true and “wild” version of Arneis…like the Roero area!
