Angelo Negro Serra Lupini Roero Arneis


A historically significant winery whose origins date back to 1670. With some of the most desired vineyard sites in Roero, Negro is one of the indisputable legends of the region. Giovanni Negro, the estate’s present owner, produced the first dry Roero Arneis on record in 1971. Following tradition, the winery in Monteu Roero now boasts a stunning lineup of Arneis as well as an impressive range of Roero Nebbiolo. Today, Negro observes organic practices while managing a staggering 64 hectares. Arneis is arguably the most important white grape of Piedmont, often referred to as “White Barolo” because of its complexity. Great Arneis has minerality due to the sandy soil it grows in that is also rich in fossils. Roero is the only region in Piedmont where you find this. In the local dialect, Arneis means “little rascal” because of the difficulties associated with growing it. Intense straw yellow color. Fragrance of yellow flesh fruits with a predominance of peach, combined with nuances of acacia flowers and tropical fruits. In the mouth has a soft, persistent attack, with a mineral finish, characteristic of the sandy soil of Roero.
