Arneis

It's no secret: Piedmont is one of the great wine-growing regions, and stars like Barolo have brought it to everyone's attention. But Piedmont also offers plenty of room for discovery, a kind of treasure hunt. One such wine treasure is the Roero wine region. Adjacent to the famous Barbaresco and Barolo, the Tanaro river forms the border with the Roero area. Here the Arneis creates a wonderfully fresh white. Arneis means rebellious in Piedmontese dialect, a temperamental personality, not always easy to lead. This seems to fit the autochthonous grape variety. In the 1970s, it had almost completely disappeared from the scene; to unfold its secrets requires patience and rigour, which not many people were able to achieve at that time. With the rise of the neighbour Barolo, ambition grew on this side of the river and the Arneis revived. Since 1985 it has had DOC status, and since 2004 it has also had DOCG status, for which only a maximum of 5% of other Piedmontese white grape varieties are allowed, in addition to the Arneis variety. When it is well cared for, it develops a lot of varietal character, it is an intense freshness with beautiful minerality, balanced in the mouth and elegant, fine fruit with notes of pear and peach. A round, fresh thing, with restrained acidity and light structure. We guarantee: He's only rebellious in puberty, growing up. Once he is tamed in bottles he almost makes his fans coo. For a Notte Italiana with light pleasure: We think it goes very well with a Vitello Tonnato!
