Caratteristiche

The first sip of Arvelé will delight aficionados of Freisa. only the best lots of freisa go into this selection, and it then spends 8 months in small barrels of second pass. The cosequent slow oxidation and absorption of compounds from the oak have softened the tannins, deepened its rich ruby tonality, and brought out of those aromas traditional to Freisa. Wild berry fruit, raspberry, and subtle hints of blackberry and rose petals meld appealingly into subtly pungent note of vanilla and tobacco leaf. The palate is crisp and fresh,yet at the same time mouthfilling and velvet-textured.

Vinificazione

We have selected the grapes for this very special wine from an old, almost historical, vineyard in Cornareto hill. The direct management of our vineyards allows us to drastically lower yields per hectare, thus obtaining perfect ripening of the grapes, which result almost withered.
Trought a traditional working, with frequents remix and delestages, we extract a significant amount of tannins and colour, thus obtaining a wine with an important structure, which ensures it a long evolution and longevity.
The passage in oak barrels allows a slow and optimal transfer of the oxygen, making Arvelè a creamy, rich, persistent and surprising wine, with a very long lasting.
