Valfacenda Roero Arneis 2019
A blend of two parcels of Arneis, the first comes from younger vines planted over soft sand and was picked early and given a direct press straight to stainless steel vats. The latter is planted over more compact soils, picked a little later and spends ten days in contact with the skins before being pressed off to old oak. They spend around nine months in these vessels before blending. It is a wine of real balance, the fruit and flowers tempered by pleasant acidity and that textbook salty finish.
