Style:

A fragrant wine with an intense nose. Highly distinguished by its long, well-balanced acidity, well-supported by plenty of body and structure.

Food Match: An ideal match for fish and starters in general, with its substantial structure it can also be recommended for serving as an aperitif and throughout a meal.

The Roero Arneis fragrance means that it is ready to drink in the spring following the vintage, and can keep for several years at its peak.

Producer's notes:

"Native to the Roero, where it has been grown since the XVI century, Roero Arneis is one of the oldest Piedmontese white grapevines. A low-yielding variety with medium-small berries and compact bunches, it ripens in the second half of September. ReCit is produced from grapes grown on several vineyards planted in different villages in the Roero, epitomizing what this magnificent land is capable of treating us to. “ReCit” means “little King” in the local dialect, and we believe that is exactly what Arneis represents in the context of native Italian varieties."

Two vineyards, two territoriesMonbirone, with its hard and limy – almost chalky – soil, where just two drops of water are all it takes for the ground to become as slippery as soap; a vineyard that is as heavy to work and hard to mould as the Monchieros themselves, but is ideal for bestowing structure, power and grandeur on the barbera variety. And the light and dry, sandy soil of Tanon, which seems to have been specially designed to bring out all the fragrance and appeal of Arneis, and is as warm and friendly to work with as the Carbone.

The setting up of the Monchiero Carbone winery can be traced back to the many members of both families who earned their livelihood as vine-growers in the past. The Monchiero Carbone approach is quite different. They believe in keeping alive the local culture and history handed down to them through the generations, in seeking to raise awareness of the quality of small volume productions, in diversity, and in wines which are produced on single hillsides or even on single small plots of land, and are capable of stirring unique emotions.
