itali Our still wines are modern and fruit forward.
They each express the unique and different places from which they come.
“OUR PHILOSOPHY IS ONE OF EXPRESSION”
Here at Curatolo Arini we see our still wines as an expression of both the soil and of the grape variety. This, in our opinion, is what enhances and brings out the unique personality and characteristics of the individual wines.
A small yield is the cornerstone of our vineyard philosophy and we have taken measures over the last few years to reduce our production per hectare, especially for our single vineyard wines.
In the cellar we combine traditional methodology with modern winemaking techniques. For our red wines, we use some skin contact in order to give the wines a true regional and site expression. For our white wines, the removal of any oxidation of the grape juice prior to fermentation gives the wines greater aroma and texture, while maintaining an elegance and balance.
For our white and fruit forward red wines, we age on lees in stainless steel vats. Our prestige reds are aged in different sizes of oak barrels – 225 litres (Bordeaux barrique), 500 (tonneaux) and 2500 litres – with the type of oak and toast level imparting the wines with more complexity and finesse.
