2022 Montaribaldi Roero Arneis Capural
This fine wine comes from the heart of the Roero area (Piedmont/Barbaresco). The DOCG Arneis vineyards are located in the municipality of Vezza d'Alba at an altitude of 250 with a southwest orientation. The soil is calcareous which is reflected in the wine. The vineyard was planted in 1999 with a very low planting density. Montaribaldi makes Vineyard wines as they say and means that the wine should be 'made' in the vineyard and not with all kinds of tinkering in the winery.
The Arneis was a forgotten grape that produces beautiful white in Montaribaldi's hands. In recent years, the Arneis white wines from Piemonte have rightly become very popular because they produce beautiful elegant white wines. The grapes for this delicious Roero Arneis are transported in small baskets of 20 kilos. The Arneis grapes should be harvested in the second half of September. Once in the winery, grapes are crushed, crushed and cooled (temperature of 10-13 ° C). The peels and the must are separated by means of a very light pressing (soft crush). The must is then allowed to rest for a few days in stainless steel thermo-conditioned tanks (13 ° C) to separate the cloudy substance. The clear must goes through the alcoholic fermentation at a temperature of 15-18 ° C. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about ten days. Once this process is complete, the wine remains in contact with its lees (su lie) for approximately 6 months. This whole process makes the wine very complex
In the glass, this Roero Arneis Capural has an intense straw yellow color with an intense nose with floral notes. In the mouth the wine is full, velvety soft and has a very nice long finish, especially for a white wine. This aromatic, rich, full-bodied white wine is suitable with fish, but given its complexity, it is also great with pasta or as an aperitif. Our advice is not to drink this beautiful white wine too cold. We like to drink this at 12 degrees and at Montaribaldi they even recommend 14 degrees, but if you are a fan of more chilled, that is also possible.
Perfect for an aperitif with small bites, Roero Arneis is excellent to combine with egg-based starters such as omelettes and vegetarian pies, fish and white meat dishes, fresh pasta with delicate sauces and creamy risotto.

The 'azienda agricola Montaribaldi' is historically a family business, located in the middle of the Langhe hills in the small village of Barbaresco. The Montaribaldi winery has been owned by the Taliano family from the beginning and has 19 hectares in the Barberesco area. In 1994 Luciano and Roberto took over the company from their father and immediately decided to only produce high quality wines. It is still a real family business, father Guiseppe and mother Carla as well as the wives of the owners, Antonella and Franca all cooperate. At present they produce about 75000 bottles a year. Thanks to the perfect location of the vineyards of Montaribaldi and the typical white soil of the hills in Langhe, the elegant wines that come from them have a long life. Note that the land around the Montaribaldi vineyards is from Gaja. The family makes some of the most famous wines from the Piedmont region: Barbaresco DOCG, Barolo DOCG, Barbera d'Alba DOC, Barbera d'Asti DOCG, Roero Arneis. They offer a complete range of wines, from grapes typical of this region. Typical of this winery is that the wines have their origin in Piedmont, are always recognizable as a 'Montaribaldi' wine and are sustainably grown and produced. As they call it themselves: making 'vineyard wines' distinguishes them from others.
