Our Arneis

It is the most typical grape variety of Roero. Its seems to have origin just in the Municipality of Canale, since the name Arneis derives from the alteration of the place name Renesio, Renexi, one of the most picturesque hills of this territory. The name Arneis in our dialect also means a grouchy and naughty person.
The history of this variety is uncertain, but we know that already in 17th century the winemakers planted some stocks of this variety in the rows of Nebbiolo so that the birds could peck its juicy and sweet berries instead of the more valuable red grapes. In 20th century, Arneis was vinified as a sweet wine. Our grandfather told us that during World War II our wine estate produced and filtered 40-45 ”brente” (equivalent to 50 litres each) of Arneis.
Later on, in the 60s some brave wine-makers thought that they could make the best of the potentiality of this variety creating another type of wine, so they started producing it as a dry wine, with the same method used for champagne, and, in a short time, they could obtain a top quality product.
Since 1979, our wine estate has been producing a Spumante from Arneis variety, obtained from selected grapes of the best vineyards; in fact, the hills chosen for this production are those with the best exposure ensuring optimal ripening, colours of the grapes from green to golden tones, and intense aroma.
The hills are Bricco Novara, stretching around the buildings of our wine estate, Val Capun, Ca’ di Carli, and Bricco Renesio, that in 2015 was included in the zone belonging to the UNESCO World Heritage.
