Elena Roero Arneis D.O.C.G. Metodo Classico

This sparkling wine made only from Arneis grapes captures the timeless magic of bubbles. The ultimate festive drink, it is perfect for celebrating joyful moments and special occasions, but also for accompanying all the courses of a convivial meal. The early harvest, essential for preserving the fruit’s acidity, is followed by the traditional double fermentation, first in steel and then in the bottle.
It is during this phase that some of the most fascinating rituals of the whole production process take place: the resting on the fine lees for at least 24 months, with the bottle constantly rotated, always by hand, as part of the ancient remuage process. This is followed by d├ęgorgement, when the lees are removed from the wine, and the closure of the bottles with the typical mushroom cork. “Elena” offers a rich, delicate perlage, scents of white-fleshed fruit and pastry cream, a silky, enveloping palate and a long, perfectly balanced finish.
