Almost extinct Arneis variety's survival is due in part to the efforts of winemaker Alfredo Currado, a member of Vietti family in 1960s which produces some of the world's most sought-after Arneis. Nowadays this difficult to grow grape Arneis from Roero region of Piedmont is getting attention.
Pale straw yellow color with fresh floral, citrus and melon aromas with hints of almond. An unoaked, dry, medium bodied white wine with crisp acidity, the Arneis is well-balanced, elegant wine with good complexity and a lingering finish.
This white wine will be good as an aperitif with light hors-d'oeuvres, crudités, seafood, salads, light soups, simply prepared veal, pork, chicken and creamy cheese.
