Brovia Roero Arneis 2019
"A perfect encapsulation of Roero Arneis: a mineral spine with notes of stone fruits and citrus define this wine. While much Piedmontese Arneis is decidedly neutral or subject to heavy new oak treatment, Brovia's version gracefully expresses its Roero origins with balance, intensity, length, and concentrationn"
The sole white wine of the estate is produced in the Roero district from an 0.80 hectare plot in Vezza d’Alba. The soil is essentially sandy in composition and sits at 340 meters altitude on south-facing slopes. The vineyard was planted in 1980. Harvest (manual) normally occurs in mid-September. The grapes are briefly macerated and the fermentation occurs at controlled temperatures (around 15 degrees Celsius) for two to three weeks. The wine rests in stainless steel until the early spring months of the following year and is usually released to the market, after several months of bottle aging, in late summer/early fall."
