Demarie LANGHE ARNEIS DOC 2019.jpg

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.

Sabbia

Vino Bianco Roero

Arneis

Forward thinking but with respect to the land and the region's history, the Demarie brothers go outside-the-box with this rare example of a skin-contact Arneis. The golden color reflects the name, Sabbia, which means sand. Maceration with the skins develops layers and textures that otherwise wouldn't exist. Dried apple, peach and apricot, give way to sage, chamomile, and saffron. Finishes a little nutty but not oxidized, a very clean example of an amber wine, AKA "orange" wine.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Spontaneous fermentation with native yeast, this wine spends more than 40 days in contact with the delicate skins of the Arneis grape. With 4 months in small, neutral French oak, the wine expresses and array of flavors that uniquely captures the terroir of this specific area of Vezza d'Alba in the Roero. The vineyard has been farmed organically for over ten years and was certified organic in 2019.

”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!

Nebbiolo d'Alba

Alba DOC

Nebbiolo

A classic expression of Nebbiolo from the best vineyards of the Demarie estate in the Roero. The flavors are what you would expect from Barbaresco, elegant tension with firm red cherry fruit followed by flowers, herbs, and earth. This medium bodied wine has a firm structure and a finish that develops nicely with age.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The city of Alba plays a major role in this part of the Piedmont and so many wines carry the name of this city on the bottle. There are a few requirements for this status but the Demarie wines go above and beyond with an average of 8 months oak aging 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.

Birbet

Vino Spumante Aromatico Roero

Brachetto Lungo

The Brachetto Lungo grape is considered one of the aromatic varieties, and with that title it does not disappoint. The bright fruit and floral flavors dominate the conversation, and yes, there is some sugar! The sweetness is noticeable but not overpowering. The freshness and acidity balance out the fruit and sugar nicely for a low alcohol delight. In the Roero, the Brachetto grape is affectionately called "Birbet."

POINTS OF INTEREST

A fun and festive wine, it is perfect for dessert, brunch, and daytime drinks. This semi-sparkling red makes for a perfect cocktail mixer, (Check out our cocktail menu with some of our recommendations), or simply pour over ice and add your favorite spirit. Garnish with a cucumber, mint leaf, or lime wedge.

Moscato d’Asti

Moscato d’Asti DOCG

Moscato

The Moscato category has been propelled towards a generic, mass-produced product. Quality producers, like Demarie, stand out and use only the best quality grapes and offer a Moscato that tastes fresh, vibrant, and balanced. The Demarie Moscato d'Asti is like fresh peaches, mandarins, and pear, scented with honeysuckle, and orange blossom.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Many believe Moscato to be one of the earliest grapes cultivated by humans. The aromatics of the grape attracted early humans, and the sweetness was a luxury at that time. There are many different grapes under the Moscato family name with over 200 different expressions of this grape. Clearly not all wines listed as Moscato or Muscat are created the same or taste the same, but they all have a distinct aroma and expressive fruit flavor!
