"As one of the best quality-minded estates in Barolo, Vietti has little claim to winemaking fame in the Roero appellation. Regardless, the 2017 Roero Arneis is one of the most successful interpretations of this white wine on the market today. It falls under that Vietti magic wand. The bouquet is true to the Arneis variety with aromas of bright citrus, white peach, wild sage, ash and natural rubber. The wine's appearance is luminous and bright. Drink this charming and refreshing white wine within the next two years."
"The grapes are selected from vineyards located in the middle of the Roero area, in Santo Stefano Roero. The vineyards are approximately 25 years old and are planted with 4.500-5.000 vines per hectare. Harvest starts around mid-September and the grapes are first pressed and then clarified. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel autoclave at lower temperature (10-12°C, 50-53° F) to preserve some natural CO2 from the fermentation.
Wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation to preserve acidity and freshness. The wine is held in stainless steel tanks on fine lees until just before bottling. Pale straw yellow color with fresh floral, citrus and melon aromas with hints of almond. An unoaked, dry, medium bodied white wine with crisp acidity, the Arneis is well-balanced, elegant wine with good complexity and a lingering finish."~Winery Notes
