Roero Arneis DOCG Cecu d'la Biunda

The Arneis vine, which is grown almost exclusively on the steep hills of the Roero, is the architect - along with Nebbiolo - of our area’s fine reputation in the world of wine.
This has inspired us to craft this selection, with the intention of offering a further opportunity to highlight the breeding and potential of this great variety. The grapes are grown on the soft, limy soil of hills surrounding the Vezza d'Alba Valley and the slopes that act as a buttress against the Rocche of Canale on the renowned Renesio hill (where this particular white variety is said to have once been known as the “white Nebbiolo” to underline its quality and importance). On this type of ground Arneis is able to express all its aroma and elegance. Intense, floral nuances are prominent on the nose, while the refinement of its lingering, structured taste that charms the palate is set to improve over the years to come. We have chosen to dedicate this selection to our grandfather Francesco Carbone, better known as "Cecu d'la Biunda", out of gratitude for both the Arneis he planted in his vineyards, and the seeds he instilled our hearts.

Colour: bright, intense straw-yellow notes.
Nose: great intensity on the nose, showing great depth that evolves slowly into sensations of aromatic freshness, ranging from white currants to hints of mint to sage.
Taste: the entry onto the palate is strongly marked by a splendid freshness of flavour, which gradually shows its true power and mouth-filling qualities, developing into a rich and very long finish on which white currants stand out.
Pairings: its finesse on the nose and mouth make it a marvellous match for seafood risottos and oven-baked fish.
