It's no secret: Piedmont is one of the world's great wine-growing regions, and stars like Barolo have made it the talk of the town. But Piedmont also offers plenty of room for discovery, a kind of treasure hunt. One such wine treasure is the Roero growing region. Adjacent to the famous Barbaresco and Barolo, the Tanaro River forms the borderline to the Roero area. Here is created with the Arneis a wonderfully fresh white. Arneis in Piedmontese dialect means rebellious, a temperamental personality, not always easy to lead. This seems to fit the autochthonous grape variety. In the 1970s it had almost completely disappeared from the scene, to unfold its secrets requires patience and also rigor, not many managed at that time. With the rise of its neighbor Barolo, ambition grew on this side of the river and Arneis revived. Since 1985 it has DOC status and since 2004 it also has DOCG status.For this, in addition to the Arneis variety, only a maximum of 5% other Piedmontese white grape varieties are permitted. If it is well cared for, it develops a lot of varietal character, it is an intense freshness with beautiful minerality, balanced in the mouth and elegant, fine fruit with notes of pear and peach. A round, fresh thing, then, with restrained acidity and light structure. We guarantee: Rebellious it is only in puberty, growing up. Once it is tamed in bottles, it almost makes its fans coo. For a Notte Italiana with light enjoyment: We think it goes perfectly with a Vitello Tonnato!
