Vietti – Roero Arneis

R370.00

The grapes are sourced from vineyards located in the heart of the Roero area, in Santo Stefano Roero, planted with 4.500-5.000 vines per hectare on a clayey limestone soil. The vines, trained with the Guyot method, have an average age of 27 years. Vinification starts with the de-stemming of the grapes and subsequent soft pressing, followed by a slow alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a temperature ranging from 14 to 16 °C to preserve the freshness and intensity of the fruit. Halfway through fermentation the tank is sealed to reabsorb a small quantity of natural CO2.

Aging: the wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation; it is held in stainless steel tanks on fine lees until bottling.

Description: Straw yellow colour with fresh floral, citrus and melon aromas with hints of almond. Dry, medium-bodied wine with crisp acidity. Well-balanced, elegant with good complexity and a lingering finish.

Food Pairings: As an aperitif with light hors d’oeuvres, vegetables, raw fish, salads, light soups, simple veal, pork and chicken dishes and creamy cheese.

After being picked into small, 2.5 kg trays, the grapes are cleaned and placed on drying mats for 4 months in dry, well-ventilated rooms. In January they are finally crushed, then very slowly fermented on the skins; the wine goes into 300-litre French barrels and Slavonian oak barrels for maturation, followed by a year’s ageing in bottle before release. A wine of superb richness and majestic flavours. The exceptional balance of all its components makes it ideal for lengthy cellaring
