Langhe Arneis Passito Denominazione di origine controllata
Passito wine derived from Arneis grapes. The selection in the collection of the goldenest bunches is fundamental as is the drying in boxes in an airy place for a few months until the right noble molds are formed.
This particular procedure gives the wine this hint of honey and saffron which is very pleasant both to the taste and to the palate.
It then remains in French oak barriques for 18-24 months. The resulting wine is packaged in 0.375 liter bottles.
Sweet but not cloying because it has a low sugar content. Excellent with both fresh and aged cheeses and dry pastries.
