Why we love it
Made with Arneis grapes growth in vineyards located in the Roero wine region, on hills on the left of the Tanaro river, the Roero Arneis, and in general the Arneis, is a very little known wine outside Piedmont, even in Italy is a wine only known to professionals.
The Arneis is a great white wine, delicate, with a fruity nose, with citrus notes. On the palate it is refreshing, with a lively acidity, balanced and elegant with a mineral finish. The lightness and refreshing acidity make the Arneis an ideal aperitif but also a great fish and seafood match.
The artisan who made it
Collina San Ponzio started a century ago, they had until Pietro Balocco, the third generation, took over, been selling their own wine and grape to some of the best Piedmont producers. Only with Pietro and now Federico is son, a very young and talented wine maker, have decided to bottle their own wines and are creating some of the most interesting Piedmont wines, clean, with a classic approach.
Their production is very limited, but their vineyards are scattered in some of the most vocated area, a lot of work for them, but great wines for us to enjoy. Their Nebbiolo vineyards used in the making of their Barolos, are located in La Morra, one of the best areas for Barolo. We love their wines and we love them, they are as passionate as we are.
