The grapes are selected from vineyardslocated in the middle of the Roero area, in Santo Stefano Roero. The vineyards are planted with 4.500-5.000 plants per hectare.

There is no malolactic fermentation which preserves acidity and freshness. The wine is held in stainless
steel tanks until bottling.

Pale sunshine yellow color with fresh floral, citrus and melon aromas with hints of almonds. An unoaked,
dry, medium bodied white wine with crisp acidity, the Arneis is well-balanced, elegant wine with good complexity
and a lingering finish.
