Style: Dry, Light Bodied

Ghiomo Arneis “Inprimis” Langhe ’18
Winemaking: The grapes are harvested when the ideal balance between acidity and sugar is reached and are afterwards kept under a cold temperature for approx. 20 days in order to increase the aromatic precursors which develop later on when pressing and steeping the skin. The fermentation is conducted under a controlled temperature.
Aging: The wine rests in steel tanks until bottling. A prolonged battonage of the fine dregs takes place before bottling.
Organoleptic notes: Intense straw color with pale green reflexes. A rich, fresh, complex, fruity and seducing bouquet with delicate floral hints (yellow flowers), a tomato leaf note and fruity flavor of peach and melon. The taste is pleasantly dry with a tasty long lasting finish.
Gastronomic pairings: Excellent aperitif, also ideal with river and sea fish, shellfish, fresh hors d’oeuvres and marinated vegetables and meats.
About the Winery
Our estate, which was first established in the early 1800’s, takes its name from the Ghiomo farmhouse, formerly a monastery, in Guarene, in the heart of the Roero area just 2 miles from Alba, home to world famous wines.
We take particular pride in the way wine is so deep-rooted in our long-standing country traditions.
It is now becoming quite customary for Italian and foreign wine-drinkers to seek out products of superior quality made by small or medium-sized wineries, where there is more opportunity for their differences – in themselves a synonym of creativity and excellence – to be brought out to the full.
The vineyards: Vigna Fussot and Vigna Granda:
Strictly traditional growing methods are followed in the vineyard, and for several years now the REGIONAL CROP FARMING PROJECT 2078/92 – designed to reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides – has been followed to guarantee that the grapes and the wines themselves are as natural as possible.
These are the right blend of hard work and the gifts of nature. Good wine will never be made from below-standard grapes, and one vintage will never be the same as another. This is what makes drinking a glass of wine so exciting.
