There aren’t specific historical documents proving an ancient origin of Arneis variety. The first references date back, in fact, to 1800.
Its area of origin and its perfect terroir is the Roero area, with its hills that rise on the left of the Tanaro river , land of feuds, marquisates and important castles.
The Arneis here finds the light, sandy soils that it prefers, with a good exposure to the South-east and South-west. Also, the temperature range and rare spring frosts influence the good yield of this variety in this area, which represents the finest Piedmontese white variety.
