Press & Reviews
The 2012 Arte is a charming blend of 90% Nebbiolo and 10% Barbera. Although the 2012 vintage is almost sold sold-out, the estate will release a 2013 in the upcoming year. This is a terrific wine that boasts impeccable density and intensity. It strikes that illusive balance between elegance and power, without giving in too strong to the latter. Dark fruit and spice come together in seamless fashion. Tightly firm tannins give lift and backbone to the mouthfeel.
