Roero Arneis DOCG 2016 Piasì – Azienda Battaglio
14% – From grapes 100% Arneis
year: 2016 Italy Region: Piedmont.
Vinification: when the grapes arrive in the winery, they are immediately pressed and the juice is conveyed into heat- conditioned tanks, where the larger suspended solids settle statically within 12-18 hours. The clear must is then inoculated with selected yeasts, and fermentation is begun at a temperature of no higher than 20°C. Upon completion of the fermentation the wine is racked, cleared and stabilised, and will be ready for bottling in the early months of the new year.
Tasting notes: straw-yellow with golden highlights, it has a delicate, complex, inviting nose with overtones of flowers blending with touches of fresh fruit. Its taste is nicely bitterish and herby, with a dry, delicate flavour.
Special pairings: recommended with starters, cooked fish and delicate meats.
Serving temperature: 10-12 °C
