Deltetto

Piemonte, piemonte Italy

When Antonio Deltetto took over from his father in his early 20s in 1977, he was fresh from university and full of new winemaking ideas that his father's meticulous cultivation of traditional varieties allowed him to develop. This spirit of innovation has stayed with him and he has passed this on to his children Carlo, Cristina and Claudia, who now all work for the estate.

The estate covers 21 hectares of vineyard in the Roero, the gently hilly region on the northern bank of the Tanaro. The soil is sandier in this area and, as a result, the wines are more aromatic and less structured than those from the Langhe hills on the south bank. The Favorita grapes (the same grape as Vermentino) for the 'Servaj' are from the eponymous vineyard in the Roero hills. The word "servaj" means "wild" and is a reference to the wild character of the Roero hills covered with vineyards and forests. It is exuberantly perfumed and lively on the palate.

The Arneis from the San Michele vineyard, partly barrel fermented, is the most beguiling example of this grape variety we know. It is understated, delicately scented, long on the finish and it’s also now certified organic.

Both are sealed under screwcap to preserve quality.
