Gianni Gagliardo - Roero Arneis 2018 DOCG
Producer: Gianni Gagliardo
Flavour profile: Vibrant, Fruity, Medium/Light
Description: The 2018 winter was long and with a lot of rain. This played an important role in re-esthablishing the water balance after the heat of 2017. Spring had a slow start and only in mid-July the temperature did rise significantly. This allowed for a fast ripening without however anticipating the harvest that enjoyed a very favorable September. Infact the climate of September and early October allowed to leave the grapes on the plant longer where necessary. 2018 has been defined as a "traditional harvest" with great balance of its components.
The grapes are gently pressed. The juice undergoes a temperature controlled fermentation. Malo does not take place in order to preserve as much freshness as possible. During the short ageing "sur lie", the lees are constantly kept in motion.
This almost extinct grape showcase flavour note of Ffennel, white flower, pear, fresh and crisp.
Our Recommendation: Perfect to be consumed as an aperitif wine, with small nibbles and light food, also incredible to be paired with white fish, seafood and mild cheeses.
