Cellar for up to 4 years. Serve chilled.

This great value Langhe producer is based in the charming medieval village of Neive, and actually has their winery in the village’s 18th century castle. The property has been owned by the Stupino family since 1964, and they currently have 26 hectares of vines and 20 hectares of hazelnuts which they farm commercially.

Although the estate specialises in producing excellent Barbaresco and Barbera d’Alba red wines, they also produce some fantastic white wines like this striking Arneis. It dates back to the 1970s when pioneering winemaker Italo Stupino set out to produce a white wine for his wife who didn’t like red wines. Italo experimented with 20 different clones of Arneis in the family’s Montebertotto, selecting the three best ones to be planted in other vineyards.

Italo’s experiment was so successful that even today 80% of the vineyards planted with Arneis in Piedmont contain those same winning three clones selected at Montebertotto. The wine is made from a mixture of those original vines planted in the 1970s as well as younger vines, which creates a complex flavour profile with delicate notes of ripe peach, citrus, and acacia blossom and a distinctive almondy finish.
