Vines

The Terre Alfieri DOCG Arneis is a single varietal wine, and therefore can be made exclusively by Arneis grapes

85% to 100% Arneis; 15% grapes from other non-aromatic white grape varieties suitable for cultivation in the Piedmont Region.

This vine is a found all over the Roero but also on the hills on the right bank of the Tanaro. It is extremely vigorous, with strong, straight shoots. Fertile and productive, the grapes ripen in late September. The bunch is medium to small in size, with a pyramid or cylindrical shape with one or two obvious wings.
