Cordero di Montezemolo Arneis Langhe - 750 Milliliters
Tasting Notes: Intense bouquet of peach and acacia flowers, chamomile, melon and yellow flowers. Fresh acidity with a slightly bitter finish. A wonderful expression of Arneis from a very traditional winemaker. Lots of chalky minerality and citrus fruit.
Estate History: Since 1340 19 generations have managed the Monfalletto property in the town of La Morra, the center of the production of Barolo wine. Even today, the property is entirely family-run. Giovanni Cordero di Montezemolo and his children Elena and Alberto are the protagonists of this millennium. The historical single-body vineyard area of 28 hectares (69 acres), rare for the area, extends over all sides of the hill. The land has always been cultivated with the various local varieties, selected and distinctly planted according to sun exposure, type of soil and the altitude. In 1965 Paolo Cordero di Montezemolo obtained an important lot of old vines in the center of the famous Villero area in Catiglione Falletto. From this 2-hectares vineyard we pick the grapes for Barolo Enrico VI. Over the years, further acquisitions and long-term leasing of vineyards have been made, not far from the winery headquarter and in the area of Alba and Roero. Currently, the total vineyard area on which grapes are grown for the production of all Cordero di Montezemolo wines is 51 hectares (126 acres).
