Roero Arneis DOCG


Arneis is a native white variety with a quirky name in the Piedmont dialect. It means “little rascal,” or capricious child. It is a character description that perfectly suits this challenging but rewarding grape. The grape is traditional to Piedmont and one of Marcarini’s goals has been to contribute to and promote the great traditions of their region. The vineyards, first planted in 1982, are located in the heart of the Roero appellation in Montaldo Roero, on the left side of the Tanaro River. The soil is sandy and rich in marine deposits and minerals that contribute to giving the wine its unique personality. Vinified and aged exclusively in stainless steel.
