The Arione estate is situated at the southern-most border of the commune of Serralunga d'Alba, at an altitude of approximately 400 meters above sea level, in a splendid southern exposure. This historic Barolo cru is the property of the Gigi Rosso family. The limestone-clay-based soil is ideal for red wines of great finesse, structure and long aging. Natural fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. The fermentation lasts approximately 10 to 12 days and then the wine macerates with the submerged cap for an additional 8 -10 days during which daily pumping-over allows for the optimal extraction of tannins and aromatic components.The wine aged 36 months in Slavonian oak barrels and 6 months in the bottle. This shows classic aromas of black cherry, leather, truffle and rose petal. The palate delivers lush wild-cherry flavors and hints of truffle, mint and the vineyard's hallmark licorice.
