    Winemaker Notes

    Garnet red with orange nuances with an intense yet pleasing bouquet of violets. On the palate this wine is dry, full bodied, tannic, and velvety.

    Enjoy with matured cheese, game, roasts (red meats) and delicate roasts.

    Arione Winery Image
    In the early 1900s, Luigi Arione founded the company that, four generations later, is still bearing his name. A story of passion and experience that has been handed down from father to son for more than a century, to evolve and grow in ever new projects, in line with the demands of the domestic and international markets.

    Lands with beautiful and breathtaking views set the scene for the history and tradition of the Arione Family, transmitting everything in its wines and its vision of the company.

    A century of wines and significant recognition, both in Italy and abroad, is a sign of a strong commitment to the search and achievement of the highest standards of quality.

    Today the Arione winery is led by brothers Mauro and Luca Arione, managers of the two family cellars.

    A wine that most perfectly conveys the spirit and essence of its place, Barbaresco is true reflection of terroir. Its star grape, like that in the neighboring Barolo region, is Nebbiolo. Four townships within the Barbaresco zone can produce Barbaresco: the actual village of Barbaresco, as well as Neive, Treiso and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio.

    Broadly speaking there are more similarities in the soils of Barbaresco and Barolo than there are differences. Barbaresco’s soils are approximately of the same two major soil types as Barolo: blue-grey marl of the Tortonion epoch, producing more fragile and aromatic characteristics, and Helvetian white yellow marl, which produces wines with more structure and tannins.

    Nebbiolo ripens earlier in Barbaresco than in Barolo, primarily due to the vineyards’ proximity to the Tanaro River and lower elevations. While the wines here are still powerful, Barbaresco expresses a more feminine side of Nebbiolo, often with softer tannins, delicate fruit and an elegant perfume. Typical in a well-made Barbaresco are expressions of rose petal, cherry, strawberry, violets, smoke and spice. These wines need a few years before they reach their peak, the best of which need over a decade or longer. Bottle aging adds more savory characteristics, such as earth, iron and dried fruit.

    Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
