ABOUT THIS WINE

The Negro estate is one of the indisputable legends of the Roero region. Giovanni Negro, the estate's present owner, is reputed to have produced the first dry Roero Arneis on record in 1971. Fuller, fresher, and more satisfying than most Arneis, Negro's unfiltered wonder takes the grape to another dimension. The wine is aged on its lees for six months and given an extra low dose of sulfur to allow its true nature to shine at a very young age.

Serve the wine slightly chilled with oysters on the half-shell, crab pastas, lightly dressed salads, broiled halibut, sushi, and sashimi.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

Since 1670, the Negro family has been cultivating vineyards in the hills of the Roero and realizing the viticultural potential of this relatively undiscovered subregion of Piedmont. In that same year, two of the estate’s most cherished vineyards—Perdaudin and Prachiosso—were first planted. Boasting some of the most desirable vineyard sites in the Roero, Negro in an indisputable legend of the area. In fact, Giovanni Negro, the estate’s proud patriarch, vinified the first dry Roero Arneis on record in 1971. The current winemaker, Angelo Negro, produces wines exclusively from the native grapes of the region, offering a remarkable range of Arneis and Nebbiolo, among other varietals. The family’s sandy, fossil-laden vineyards in the village of Monteu Roero coupled with their meticulous work in the vineyard and the cellar give rise to precise, soulful wines. Today, the estate observes organic practices while managing a staggering 70 hectares under vine.
