2015 Val Del Prete Bizarro
Cascina Val del Prete or valley of the priest takes its name from the exiled Bishop of Asti who lived there in 1850.
In 1977 Bartolomeo Roagna and his wife Carolina bought the farm “Val del Prete” where they had worked as sharecroppers. The first thing they did was replace some grain and fruit with vines. The grapes are planted on south facing slopes in a splendid natural amphitheater. This is 100% Arneis. It gets a one and a half day maceration on the skins. Fermentation and malolactic occur in French oak barrels. It rests on the yeasts, (lees), for 7 months. Excellent.
