COCLICò

"A orange wine for its winemaking that corresponds to the true rural tradition of the Roero Arneis. When I was a child and I went with my father to the other farmers, each of them kept a demijohn of traditional autochthonous grapes  a very precious wine that was drunk at parties and was vinified in maceration.

How the DOC Arneis began in 1990, the country tradition of maceration was canceled and only the noble one in white was considered".

Tasting notes

Yellow straw color with gold ancient reflections. The nose is complex and harmonious, an explosion of citrus notes, dried fruit and fennel seeds. poppy and acacia flowers. Intense and elegant with distinct minerality and good sapidity. Long finish elegant and balanced.

 

Food match

Is good for every meals, aperitif, appetizers or alone!

 

My favorite combination: a dish of raviolini al plin, a local dish based on fresh egg pasta filled with vegetable, meat or cheese with butter and aromatic herbs of my garden (rosemary, sage and thyme)
