Wine Details

Malvira Roero Sparkling Arneis Rive Gauche NV

This white sparkler is made from 100% Arneis, the Roero region’s most popular white grape variety. “Rive Gauche” is a clever reference to the Roero district’s position on the “left bank” of the Tanaro River in Piedmont. Fresh aromas of white peach and spring flowers, and a slightly herbal note, complement a savory and balanced palate and a pleasant, dry finish. This is a vibrant Spumante, perfect for an aperitif with friends or to refresh a warm Summer’s day.
