TASTING NOTES Brilliant straw yellow with delicate green reflections in the glass. Floral and fruity bouquet of acacia flowers, yellow nectarine and melon. Fresh with a pleasant acid cut and great equilibrium between fruit notes and mineral tones on the palate. Arvià in Piedmont dialect means "lively, ready," and can refer to a vivacious and smart kid. We let leaves to partially shade the grapes until the harvest to preserve and intensify their varietal flavors and aromas.
