”Luigi” Bianco Pét-Nat

Vino Frizzante Bianco Roero

Arneis

This Pét-Nat is a playful experiment with the major white grape of the Roero region, Arneis. A popular style worldwide, Pét-Nat is a French term for petillant naturel, which means a naturally sparkling wine. Unlike Champagne, there is just one fermentation that finishes in the bottle leaving mild carbonation and often times, natural sediment. The wine is energetic and fresh with lime and lemon citrus, fresh cut wildflowers, and peach pit.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The label says everything about this wine. A colorful fish swimming against-the-grain, listening to her own music. The Pét-Nat style can range drastically, like any wine category. Some are funky, some have been disgorged to remove sediment, while others just have different expressions based off of the region or grape. Wild yeast fermentation from organically farmed, estate vineyards in the Roero, give this wine a fresh new sound for your palate!

Barbera d'Alba Superiore

Alba DOC

Barbera

One of the most versatile wines on earth. The Barbera grape combines complexity and drinkability with freshness and mild tannins. This is a staple for any foodie. The flavors hint at wild fruits, herbs, and spices with medium body. There is a reason this is the most popular grape locally in the piedmont, you can pair it with almost any food or any occasion.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The Demarie family grows all their own grapes and they do it organically. Three generations have now tended the steep hills of the Roero region just north of the city of Alba. One might say they have perfected a house style for Barbera, they make a traditional wine of elegance and finesse, aged for 6 months in large Slavonian oak barrels.

Barbaresco

Barbaresco DOCG

Nebbiolo

Barbaresco is seen as the Queen of Nebbiolo to Barolo's King. It is often thought of as a more delicate and younger style, but not so with this small production from Demarie. A long maceration and 2 years in barrel impart a depth and structure on a level with the world's finest wines. Dark cherry fruits give way to a fragrant earthiness implying mushroom, dried flowers, and tarragon. Medium/full bodied, the structure needs air to soften bringing forth a wine of complex sophistication.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Sourced from two carefully maintained parcels around the town of Nieve, the Demarie family crafts a balanced wine worthy of the Barbaresco name and tradition. 2 years of aging in large Slavonian oak goes above and beyond the requirements for Barbaresco and only a few thousand bottles are produced.

Arneis

Langhe DOC

Arneis

Arneis is a pleasure to drink. A dry style wine, the aromatics are subdued with notes of white flowers, apricot, grapefruit, and fresh herbs. The minerality is reminiscent of dried Broom grass and nuts, like hazelnut or almond. The citrus and herbaceous elements tend to attract lovers of Sauvignon Blanc but the flavors are unique to this grape and region.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Arneis is a difficult grape to manage needing well drained soils and the perfect climate. the name name, Arneis, reflects this, meaning, "little rascal'. From organically farmed sandy soils, the Arneis grape is a significant part of the regions history and identity. Very few people have had success growing this grape outside the Piedmont region of Italy.
