Arione is Enzo’s only non-La Morra cru. It comes from 0.7ha of vines at 450m facing SW/S, planted in 1999. These are the nine southernmost rows of vines in Arione, which is the southernmost cru in Serralunga. Enzo has a 25-year lease here; his first Arione was produced in 2003. As Roberto Conterno of Giacomo Conterno has since purchased the remainder of the cru, there are currently only two producers of Arione, Conterno and Boglietti. In Enzo’s words, the vines of Arione produce his most “Pinot-like” Barolo due to the altitude and wind-swept freshness of the site.Fermentation in open-top tine, 80 days of maceration. Aging is in French oak cask. 2,000 bottles made.
