This single-vineyard Arneis is a stunning wine, laced with white orchard fruit, crushed rocks, mint and white pepper. The Arneis grapes for this wine come from the bottom portion of the Vigna Trinità, an exceptional south/southwestern-facing hillside vineyard in the Roero. This is an incredibly expressive Arneis with a sort of crystalline purity.
The 2011 Roero Arneis Trinita is a little steelier than the Renesio and more understated, but just as beautiful. Bright white-fleshed fruit, flowers and wet stones are layered into this Chablis-like Roero. This is another striking, beautifully balanced wine from Malvira. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014.
The 2010 Roero Arneis Trinita is less overly fruity than the Renesio. Smoke, minerals, ash and white peaches are some of the flavors that flow from this intense Arneis. I especially like the energy and tension of the finish. This is a marvelous showing. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
The 2009 Roero Arneis Trinita is simply beautiful. Smoke, wet stones, ash and white stone fruits are some of the notes that emerge from this flinty, mineral-driven Arneis. The wine turns a touch more generous with air, but remains taut, vibrant and beautifully focused through to the finish. In this vintage the Trinita reveals more freshness than the Renesio, despite having seen a brief spell in oak. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012.
