The vineyard: since the year 2017 all the grapes for our Ariss come from the zone of Roero. Two different vineyards, one is in Monticello d’Alba, at the bottom of a hill with Southern exposition. The other one is in Vezza d’Alba and faces East.

The variety: the Arneis is an autochthonous variety of the Langhe, once forgotten but recovered in the end of the 1960’s and gaining popularity ever since.

The wine: its delicate nose opens up with notes of white and yellow peaches, pears and wisteria (Glycinia), charming and perfumed. Its precise acidity and intense body make it a good pair for raw fish (sushi, sashimi). Good also as an aperitif.

The name: «ariss» in Piedmontese language means «hedgehog», our symbol.

The label: the word «ariss» apart from the animal stands for the adjective «curly». Which Botticelli’s Venus definitely is, apart from being charming, pale skinned and blond. Despite her somewhat «fluffiness» seems to easily rise up from her shell, just like our Arneis, with fit body but an easy drinker.
