Vietti Roero Arneis 2017

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.

" As one of the best quality-minded estates in Barolo, Vietti has little claim to winemaking fame in the Roero appellation. Regardless, the 2017 Roero Arneis is one of the most successful interpretations of this white wine on the market today. It falls under that Vietti magic wand. The bouquet is true to the Arneis variety with aromas of bright citrus, white peach, wild sage, ash and natural rubber. The wine's appearance is luminous and bright. Drink this charming and refreshing white wine within the next two years." —by Monica Larner

Floral and peach aromas give way to pink grapefruit and white pepper notes as this white goes from start to finish. Rich, balanced and long. Drink now
