Terroir Notes: In 2020, Cascina delle Rose acquired a small parcel located in the Marcorino MGA/Cru in Neive, where there are old Arneis vines (year of planting around 1975/1980). Instead of uprooting the old vines to plant Nebbiolo, they decided to challenge themselves to make their first indigenous white wine. We are thrilled to offer a small allocation of the second vintage release! We only received three cases for the Illinois market.

Winemaking Notes: The vinification was very simple (basically the same they do on their other wines such as Dolcetto): maceration of about 7-8 days on the skins (submersed via pumping over), spontaneous fermentation, spontaneous malolactic, aging in steel, and no clarification or filtration in order to maintain the structure of wine. The wine was bottled with a waning lunar cycle, for a total production of 416 bottles.

Tasting Notes: The color is a brilliant and intense yellow, with golden reflections. It shows elegant floral notes, jasmine, hints of sweet citrus peel, white peach and delicate acacia honey. Intriguing structure, Mun Cru bursts with a wealth of flavors. Round and balanced, sapid and long persistence.
