Medium Body, Dry (Freisa). DOC. Alc 14.5%.
4/5 Bibenda (Italian Sommelier Foundation); 90/100 Wine Enthusiast.
"Aromas of French oak, stewed prune and baking spice shape the subtle nose. On the full-bodied, rather concentrated palate, fine-grained tannins support dried cherry, vanilla and mocha before a bitter almond close. It's savory now but drink sooner rather than later to capture the fruit and freshness." - Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast.
WINERY NOTES: Arvelè, in Piemonte dialect, means “revelation”. 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 consequent 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.
VINIFICATION: 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. Through 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.
