Faiv is a classic method Arneis where the very long aging becomes synonymous with importance and softness, depth and refinement. A sparkling fragrant with notes of chamomile and wildflowers, peach and vanilla. With a sapid and silky impact, it evolves into ripe fruit, citrus and nutmeg, without cutting out a refreshing acidity and a creamy consistency, with a very fine and persistent perlage. That's its beauty:it's complex, but incredibly fresh - hey, not bad for a 2011! It works with fresh cheeses, raw and grilled fish, shellfish and spicy first courses, or for any time when all-you-need is a bubble with all the trappings.
Variety : Arneis 100%
Castellinaldo d'Alba, deep in Roero. Under the wise guidance of the progenitor Sergio Marchisio, his sons Fabio and Ivo work side by side in the vineyard and in the cellar, and Elena, Marisa and Francesco where wine happens and where everything else moves. Marchisio cultivates about twenty hectares of Guyot trained, mostly of Arneis, to which are added Barbera and Nebbioli, all organically and biodynamic. The hilly soils are exposed to the south-east and are mainly made up of calcareous marl and sandy soil of alluvial origin.
