Val dei Preti is the original single-vineyard of the estate planted 45 years ago.  With a range of southerly exposures, the final product is extremely selective representing the strength of the vintage as judged by Giovanni Correggia.

First off and this is something new for the region as well as Correggia is the first release of an aged Arneis (under screwcap)! The 2012 Arneis has been aged for one year in stainless steel and then 6 years in bottle before release. While Arneis' early tension is common to see, the ageing process here results in a wine of complexity and uncommonly graceful texture. Richness come to the fore across the palate whilst still exhibiting a saline complexity rarely seen in Arneis. It manages to retain unexpected freshness, becoming one of the most interesting and delicious Arneis we've tried. PWS
