Langhe Arneis Doc “Perlej”GRAPE-VARIETY : 100% Arneis CLIMATE: the microclimate found in the Roero is just about perfect for the production of high quality wines. First-of-all, rainfall in this area is below the national average, and nearly every summer is hot, with plenty of days of sunshine. Most of the rain fall s in the spring, while the quality of the grapes is not affected by the brief thunderstorms that tend to break out during the summer . WINE-MAKING TECHNIQUE: the wine-making is identical to that of the Roero Arneis “Piasì” but it changes the location of the vineyard. 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 . Intense perfumes and acidit y more accented, smaller softness in mouth. PAIRINGS: recommended with starters, cooked fi sh and delicate meats. WINE-PRODUCER, OENOLOGIST : Gianluca Battaglio
