Terroir The soil is rich of calcareous clay marl and sand

Marco Bonfante Perste' is bellisimo! Refreshing? Yes. Delicious? Yes, but so far away from the crisp and citrussy world of something like a Sauvignon. This is clean and fine, with notes of peach and apricot. The wine has plenty of body and a lovely smooth, fresh mouthfeel. It all just feels perfectly balanced and fragrant, like taking a walk through an Italian orchard in the height of summer. Enjoy with all manner of fish dishes, salad or pork.

Roero is a small area on the left bank of the Tanaro river, in front of the production area of Barbaresco. A paper from 1478 stored in Canale testifies the presence of Arneis variety already in that time. The name Perste', “Per Stefano” (For Stefano) is a welcome homage to Micaela's first son, who joined the family in 2014.
