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 “loved by all” – wine, often associated with Sauvignon or Chardonnay. I SAY NO!
Arneis is UNIQUE and it should be enhanced more. By tasting our version that, you may like or you may not like, you will understand the true essence of this grape variety; not born to be an easy-to-appreciate wine. A sincere, true and “wild” version of Arneis…like the Roero area!
