Alasia Roero Arneis DOCG

2018

In a Nutshell

A fine example of the interesting and slightly exotic Arneis variety.

Tasting Notes

A rich, dry white with ripe pear fruit, almond and tropical notes. The palate is plump, soft and expressive, with stone fruit and baked apple characters, an attractive texture, and a nutty, herbal finish.

Production Notes

1989 saw the official recognition of Arneis di Roero as a DOC wine. The grapes for Alasia Roero Arneis are sourced from vineyards on the Langhe hills in the Piemonte region. The vineyards have a south westerly aspect and are situated at altitudes between 200m and 300m above sea level. The vines have an average age of 20 years. The vines are grown in limestone clay soil and trained in the low Guyot trellis system. 100% tank fermented under temperature control. Aged on fine lees with gentle stirring.

Araldica is Piemonte’s most forward-thinking co-operative, situated in Castel Boglione, in the heart of Barbera d’Asti territory. Here they work with 230 grower members to source quality grapes from around 690ha of vineyards. Many of their members joined the co-operative in the 1950s and have a long and loyal relationship with the winery.
