Petite Arvine grows at 550 metres a.s.l. in the Rovettaz vineyard, which features sharp inclination and it’s exposed to the south, enjoying remarkably dry and windy climate; we have chosen to adopt strictly eco-compatible agronomic techniques in this area.

The outcome is a wine featuring bright straw-yellow colour, intense bouquet, floral notes and citrus sensations, expecially of pink grapefruit; its good sapidity and well balanced acid structure ensure long-term ageing.

It makes a good accompaniment to starters, white meats and fish.
