Winemaking Notes: This wine is made from manually harvested grapes in Scaglione's meticulously cultivated vineyards located in the Roero growing zone. Roero Arneis is the only indigenous white grape of Piedmont. Grapes were destemmed and softly pressed into stainless steel tanks for temperature controlled fermentation. The wine remained on the lees for 6 months before bottling.
About the Name: Scaglione strips down the rigidness of the traditional stuffy label and says it like it is. He is a firm believer that wine should be an approachable adventure. Gabriele Scaglione’s Roero Arneis "excellent with fish and..." label says it all. This is a simple yet complex wine: clean, freshly budding, and classic. This wine is jovial, ready for merrymaking.
Tasting Notes: From it’s straw yellow color to it’s delicate nose of white flowers and fruits this is a wine that should be enjoyed everyday. This Roero Arneis is fresh, dry, lightly herbaceous with a playful persistence that keeps a smile on your lips. Pair this youthful wine with lighter seafood dishes, oysters and crustaceans. Also appreciate it with cheese and white meats and, as always, with people you cherish.
