Arnione | Campo Alla Sughera

Arnione

Bolgheri Doc Superiore

The circle that encloses perfection

A wine with an unmistakable, elegant, refined identity. Produced only from the best plots of Campo alla Sughera, harvested and vinified separately, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. With each sip, Arnione reveals the pleasant complexity of Bolgheri, the freshness of the sea and the structure of its mighty hills. It refines in French oak barriques and tonneaux, and continues aging in the bottle.

Arnione refers to the oval-shaped alabaster that the soils of the Etruscan coast offer as magnificent underground specimens. A «geological poem» that contains the secret of perfection in its circular form and gives life to the symbol that characterizes all the labels of Campo alla Sughera.
