Patoj: deception in Piedmontese dialect. For its beautiful golden color, it was planted together with other varieties in the vineyard to deceive the birds by attracting them and preventing the bunches of more precious varieties such as, for example, Nebbiolo get bunches of varieties
The Arneis variety has been a constant presence for centuries on the not too compact soil dedicated to the vine to the left of the River Tanaro.
Each year the grapes cultivated on these vineyards make a white Roero Arneis with an engaging fragrance and minerality together with very special organoleptic qualities.
A compact strawyellow with golden highlights, it has an intensely fruity, clear-cut nose of hazelnut, lemon, sage and apple, and a dry taste with good body and balance.
It is a fine companion during those happy moments with tasty appetizers before sitting down to a meal, and a perfect match for delicate dishes.
