Roero Arneis DOC
Must be 100% Arneis from just north of Alba (the heart of the Langhe). There is 425 hectare devoted to this wine.
Known as one of the greatest wine regions in the world, its name literally means the ‘foot of the mountain’. Piedmont located in the North Western reach of Italy. There are a lot of parallels drawn between the best wines of Piedmont (Barolo and Barbaresco) and the wines of Burgundy. The region neighbours France and Switzerland with its border defined by the Alps to the north and west and Apennines to the south. These natural defences were used to keep the Ligurians safe from Roman invasions. But luckily it didn’t work forever, as we may not have the wines that we cherish today.
The most complex of the whites used in Piedmont. It makes mid-weight wines tasting of sour apple, grapefruit and white flowers.
