About this Product

Delicate citrus, apple, pear, blossom and floral notes on the nose that flows through on the palate. There’s also a softness and richness that makes it feel delicate yet powerful. Lovely gentle acidity and a slight saline edge. The finish is long and lingering as the fruits and floral notes fade. This has an abv of 14% and it is so well balanced you don’t notice it at all. This is delicious and well worth seeking out to try to #giveanewwineago. - Nick Fisher

About Mauro Molino

Mauro Molino winery was founded in 1953 near the old St. Martyn Monastery. It owns 10 hectares of vineyards, but is most proud of vineyards of Vvigna Conca and Vigna Gancia, from which barola is produced. More than half of the vineyard area is occupied by 'Nebbiolo' about 2.6 ha by 'Barbera', about half a hectare by 'Dolcetto' and 'Chardonnay' grapes. Since 1978, the winery has been run by Mauro Molino, who graduated in oenology from the Alba Institute.

About Italy

Italy boasts more indigenous grape varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most Italian wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some Italian wine regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but are declining in popularity, especially as younger growers take interest in reviving local varieties.

Most important are Sangiovese, reaching its greatest potential in Tuscany, as well as Nebbiolo, the prized grape of Piedmont, producing single varietal, age-worthy Piedmontese wines. Other important varieties include Corvina, Montepulciano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola and of course the white wines, Trebbiano, Verdicchio and Garganega. The list goes on.

About Arneis

Yielding a dry and subtly scented wine, Arneis is the star white grape of Piedmont. While it once risked extinction, lost in the shadow of the regions' star red varieties, Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, the grape experienced an explosion in popularity in the 1980s due to growing local demand for white wine. Barolo and Barbaresco producers finally recognised the gold mine of superb Arneis vines that had been growing for decades in Roero, merely kilometres away across the Tanaro River.
