About this wine

The grapes to produce the Roero Arneis DOCG “Bricco delle Ciliegie” Giovanni Almondo were hand picked in 15kg boxes after being carefully selected both before and during harvest. At the winery, the berries underwent a third selection before they were gently pressed with a pneumatic press. Fermentation took place in stainless-steel vats with indigenous yeasts for 10 months. The wine aged for a further six months in stainless steel before bottling.

The single vineyard “Bricco delle Ciliegie” is made with Arneis grown on a 6 hectare south east facing plot on the Vittori hill, located at 340-370 metres above sea level, in the municipality of Montà. Until seventy years ago this area was covered with cherry (Ciliegie in Italian) trees and gave the name to this wine. Soils here are mostly sandy with a small percentage of silt and clay. At the top of the hillside the soil is composed by coarse sand and gravel from 2.5 million years ago, while closer to the valley soils are slightly more calcareous and structured, rich in shellfish, with ‘Sand of Asti’ from 4.5 million years ago. Vines are 35 years old and Guyot trained with vertical shoot positioning.

Giovanni Almondo is family-owned estate based in Montà, in the Roero hills north of Alba. Although the Almondo family has lived here for over 600 years, Domenico Almondo was the first, in the early 1980s, to make wine from their 18 hectares of meticulously tended vines. He is now assisted by his sons Stefano and Domenico. The commune of Montà is geologically divided. Giovanni Almondo’s Arneis achieves great aromatic expression in the higher-acidity, sandy soils of the northern vineyards, while his Nebbiolo thrives in the south on slightly lower-lying calcareous soils of marine origin.
