The Arneis vine was first mentioned in a document dating back to 1478 which is now preserved in the town hall in Canale. The great polish and elegance that shows through in the wine from the outset in its bright straw-yellow colour with greenish highlights continues in intense aromas of fresh fruit and flowers, and is rounded off by well-balanced roundness on the mouth, with a delicately bitterish finish. Recommended serving temperature 8-10°C.
A traditional winemaking process, with lengthy fermentation on the skins of grapes from the finest vineyards and ageing in big oak casks, gives this wine the great body and structure that are Barolos distinguishing features. Smooth nose of violets, tobacco and spices, with rounded floral overtones. Recommended serving temperature 18-20°C.
With traditions dating back more than a century, Nebbiolo dAlba is without question the most important wine produced in this area. Nebbiolo is one of the oldest native varieties, and these grapes are grown on slopes in the very best positions at the top of the most inaccessible and uneven hills. The wine is deep ruby-red with soft orange highlights, and has a delicate bouquet and a dry, well-bodied and nicely tannic taste. Recommended serving temperature 18-20°C.
The Cantina Del Nebbiolo co-operative wine cellar was established on 30 September 1959 by 23 founder members in Vezza dAlba in the heart of the Roero, an extraordinary land of great wines and farming traditions. A prime wine-growing area for centuries, the picturesque setting of the Roero is full of charm, with steep hills and gentle slopes framed by mountains in the background.
