Camilin is an Arneis white wine from the newly established DOCG Terre Alfieri in Piemonte. Straw yellow and scent of white fruits. In the mouth is persistent and very broad aroma, with mineral notes.

Why have we selected this wine?

This micro-produced and handmade Arneis comes from a very special place. Terre Alfieri is indeed one of the most unique production area in Piemonte. We are in the Asti commune north of Langhe. The vineyards are on the right side of the Tanaro river -which divides the Roero from Terre Alfieri. This area uniqueness and high quality has been awarded with the DOCG appellation (the highest level in Italy) from October 2020. Only 4 producers in this DOCG, and one of them is our Vincenzo. 

The Bossotti family

Vincenzo and Giovanna, together with their children Cristina, her husband Davide, have been making wine in this wine amphitheatre since 2000. 


The small winery is in Cisterna d’Asti, a small village that is 375 metres above sea level, in the province of Asti on the border of the province of Cuneo. Vincenzo vineyards cover a surface of about 9 hectares in the newly established Terre Alfieri DOCG. They all grown on ideal steep hills with traditional varieties: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Arneis and the indigenous grape Croatina. The vineyards’ soil is mostly made up of sandstone, sedimentary rocks of marine origin mixed with limestone, clay and sand, which results in a soft permeable soil. The latest technical developments are implanted in the vineyards respecting the traditional manner, using methods that have a minimal impact on the environment.
