This is an Arneis of a single vineyard, located in the municipality of Canale, called Sru, where there is less sand and more calcareous soil, so the wine has delicate citrus scents.
The wine has remained for a year in steel tanks on its fine nut.
Sru has a long aftertaste; is excellent even in the coming years. So it can be left in the wine cellar for those who choose to keep the wine.
