Deltetto, 'San Michele', Roero Arneis DOCG, Piemonte, Italy

£16.99

This wine is straw yellow in colour, with a bouquet of exotic fruit, apples and vanilla. The Roero Arneis has a mineral character which lifts the fruit aromas. A lively freshness on the finish gives excellent balance.

When Antonio Deltetto took over from his father in his early 20s in 1977, he was fresh from university and full of new winemaking ideas that his father's meticulous cultivation of traditional varieties allowed him to develop. The estate covers 21 hectares of vineyard in the Roero, the gently hilly region on the northern bank of the Tanaro.

Deltetto is considered to be one of the top producers of Arneis in the region.
