The grapes come from vineyards located on the steep hills of the Roero, formed predominantly of siliceous limestone soils, which are rich in quartz sands and very fine clays mixed with thin and brittle layers of sandstone. These soils are soft and permeable, providing the ideal conditions for expressing the fresh and fragrant aromas of the Arneis grape.
The colour is pale straw-yellow and, sometimes, shows light antique-gold hues. The aroma is fruity with fragrant scents of acacia flowers, rennet apples, peaches and green hazelnuts. The taste is fresh, fragrant and lightly mineral. Roero Arneis is well-matched with delicate, flavourful appetisers, such as veal with tuna sauce, vegetable soufflé, pasta with vegetables, and boiled or baked white meat. It is the perfect companion of raw or marinated fish.
