Vintage 2018 Roero Arneis DOCG Franco

Roero Arneis DOCG Franco

Typical Piedmontese white wine, highlystructured and pronounced.

Appearance: deep straw yellow with green hues.

Nose: fresh, delicate and tempting with a well-balanced fragrance of chamomile and white flesh fruit, an indelible remembrance of this kind of grape.

Palate: smooth and pronounced, slightly sharp for a fresh and lingering wine.

Gastronomic matching: it is excellent with the typical Piedmontese starters, cooked with white meat too. However, it also accompanies fish and first dishes, prepared with vegetable sauces, very well.
