"Prachiosso" is the name of a vineyard situated on the hills of Sant'Anna in Monteu Roero, where the Nebbiolo and Arneis species of vine provide the basis from which this wine is produced. The production method requires 98% Nebbiolo and only 2% Arneis. The grapes are harvested at the Prachiosso vineyard late in the year, in early to mid October and the temperature during the wine-making process is always carefully controlled, with a maceration period of 12-14 days. In the New Year the wine matures in large steel, steel wooden and oak containers and in September it is bottled and is refined for several months before it is ready for consumption. It is an intense ruby colour and has an abundant, fruity and inviting aroma with intimations of geranium, strawberries, raspberries and a subtle hint of spices. It is strong-willed, yet elegant and well-proportioned.

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There are accurate historical references to this rural company located in Sant'Anna di Monteu Roero.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.
