Recit Arneis Roero 2023

DOCG Roero Arneis, Piedmont, Italy

100% Arneis | 13.5% ABV

£19.00

We are proud to offer this Italian white wine made from 100% Arneis grapes in the Piedmont region of Italy. “ReCit ” in the Piedmontese dialect means “little King". This Recit is the perfect blend between Arneis' sumptuous palate and the vineyards' minerality. Lively with notes of pear, lemongrass, sugarloaf pineapple, and a pretty saline finish. A succulent beauty.

Guide to icons

On the nose it stands out for its intense and engaging aromas of ripe fruits (apple and pear), enriched with hints of almond. On the palate, it displays a mouth-filling entry, packed with soft and sensual tactile sensations, followed by an intense - though never flabby - feel; a full, dry finish.

Service: Serve chilled at 8-10°C.

Food Pairing: Excellent with cheese, fish, pasta in creamy sauce, poultry, shellfish and vegetarian dishes.

Francesco Monchiero is the winemaker for the vineyard.
“I am really lucky as an oenologist to have been born in a special region like Roero, because here I was able to experience both vinifications of red and white native grapes: Nebbiolo and Arneis! in Piedmont the great elegance of Nebbiolo-based red wines has always been recognized, while for the white Roero Arneis it was a completely new path to follow for me when I started my career: this has stimulated me a lot to improve my skills and discover all the secrets of white winemaking in a red wine world like Piemonte!”

The winery is located in Piedmont, specifically in the
geographical area of Roero, between Langhe and Monferrato, in the heart of the wine region, now recognized as UNESCO World Heritage. The landscape is unique and it features a succession of rolling hills until you reach the waters of the river Tanaro. Your eyes feast on a rapid sequence of landscapes, from the wild beauty of the hamlets to the jagged crests; from the 35 hectares of orderly vineyards to the chestnut and hazelnut trees, and orchards in bloom. The soil here is clayey-calcareous, generally light, and, in some parts, rich in sand.

250,000 years ago lay the bed of an ancient sea, which has now retracted, leaving stratifications of shell, sea urchin, and fish fossils behind. This is where our vines have their roots: this is the birthplace of our wines.
