Arneis is the species of grapevine, "Perdaudin" is the name of the vineyard situated on the highest part of the hill with a southerly exposure. The soil is ancient, rich in sand and limestone, and was clearly once the bed of a long since vanished sea. The grapes mature in the second or third week of September, immediately after the first thinning out of the summer. They are hand-picked, the choicest grapes are carefully selected, and vinted after the stalks and the skins have been removed. Fermentation, which takes place in steel vats, is quite a slow process due to the carefully controlled temperature, which is kept to a low 17 - 18°C. The wine has a beautifully intense straw-colour, with a bright greenish reflection discernible every now and again. It has an intense, fragrant aroma that is reminiscent of golden apples, hazelnuts and bananas and tastes full and elegant, with a fine aftertaste that reawakens the sense of smell.

The producer

There are accurate historical references to this rural company located in Sant'Anna di Monteu Roero. The old register preserved in the historical archives of the municipality of Monteu Roero testifies that in 1670 the son of one deceased 'Audino', Giovanni Domenico Negro, owned a house with an oven, yard, winery and vines in the same area where the "Perdaudin" vineyard and smallholding is situated today. For centuries generations of the same family have developed their wine-making skills here. The Negro family have continued to cultivate their vines with the same enthusiasm and professionalism, harvesting precious bunches of grapes and producing agreeable wines year after year. Roero - the area where the Negro company is situated - is an area rich in factors essential for the production of quality wines. The climate is temperate-cold, with a good temperature range and relatively low humidity compared to nearby areas. The land, formed out of the remains of an ancient sea, is made up of sand (between 20% and 40%), a good percentage of limestone and a little clay, lending the soil a light and permeable structure. The wines that originate here have a pronounced aroma and complex structure - not heavy, but with a precise and unmistakable character. The wineries themselves are situated close to the Riveri holdings in the hamlet of Sant'Anna, and have been carefully equipped with modern technology that works alongside older tried and tested traditions. The result of this marriage between tradition and technology is a very agreeable wine, impeccable from the point of view of quality, rich in distinctive character, with a strong fragrance and complex structure, capable of winning approval both in Italy and on a world-wide scale.

Best with

This wine is particularly well suited to antipasta based on fish or molluscs, and to vegetables, white meat and fine first courses. It is also pleasant when drunk as an aperitif.

How to serve it

The wine should be served at 10 - 12 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

This is not a wine that will improve with age and should therefore be drunk within a maximum of two to three years of purchase. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
