The Roero Arneis DOCG Riserva “Occhetti” is not a common Roero Arneis. It is made with Arneis grapes from a very old vineyard, that make low grapes but with a perfect level of ripeness, it is vinificated in Acacia barrels and Oak barrels and it is aged on the lees for about 14 months. These are some of the reason that make this wine one of the best Roero Arneis of the Langhe-Roero area.
The Langhe Nebbiolo DOC “Occhetti” is the most representative wine of the Poderi Moretti winery. It is made with Nebbiolo grapes from the vineyards located around the winery, that are picked when they reach the best level of ripeness. Each vineyard has a particular kind of soil, that give specific characteristics to the final wine. After a natural fermentation the wine is aged in the traditional big oak barrels for 18 months. Its scents makes this wine always more intriguing year by year.
Barolo DOCG: the king of the wines and wine of the kings. It is made with the best Nebbiolo grapes from the vineyards located in La Morra village, in Barolo area. There the soil is richer of clay and limestone and it allow to make wines more powerful and with a better structure. For this reason the ageing is longer. The wine is aged for 36 month in the traditional big oak barrels. Its complexity makes this wine always the best choice.
These are just some of the great wines produced by Francesco Moretti and his sons Alessandra and Riccardo.
