VINIFICATIONThe Arneis grapes have to be harvested during the second decade of September.
Once in the winery, grapes are destemmed, crushed and chilled (temperature of 10-13 °C).
Then, they are put in the pneumatic press to divide the skins from the must (soft crush). The must is then left to rest a few days in stainless steel thermo-conditioned tanks (13°C) to separate the turbid.
The clear must goes through the alcoholic fermentation at a temperature of 15-18°C. Alcoholic fermentation lasts about ten days.
Once it finishes, the wine is poured and then left in contact with its lees.
Eventually in May, 7 months after the harvest, the Roero Arneis DOCG is then bottled and ready to be marketed.
