Roero DOCG Riserva Mario Costa (100% Arneis)

Intense straw colour, the nose is rich and complex. It expresses itself with aromas of citrus, white pepper, herbs and a delicate note of dried apricot. On the palate, this wine is smooth and powerful, with a vigorous acidity, but leaves a rich taste in the mouth, ideally complementing the mineral notes. A very elegant wine but at the same time extremely full and deep, produced only in exceptional vintages.

Produced from only Arneis grapes at an altitude of 300 metres, on sandy, well-exposed soils, it is harvested at the end of September.

Its vinification is carried out by destemming, maceration in the press for 8 hours in an inert environment and subsequent soft pressing. It ferments in second-passage French oak barriques and matures on the noble lees with frequent manual bâtonnage.
Refinement is partly in wood (16 months) and partly in bottle (minimum 18/24 months in bottles lying down).
