Wine Special: ROERO ARNEIS DOCG

CANTINE POVERO – PIEDMONT

Arneis is a white varietal (grape) indigenous to Piemonte, specifically from the Roero area, north west of Alba. Over the last several years Arneis’ popularity has grown enormously and since 2006 it has gained the DOCG appellation, the highest official quality ranking among Italian wines. Roero Arneis is a terroir driven wine, growing well in the sandy soils of the Roero hills. Known as the “White Nebbiolo” of italian wines, it expresses an unrivaled fruitiness, a delicate freshness and mineral notes. Some wines from cooler vintages or sites offer grapefruit notes and a lean, herbal finish, where as those from warmer vintages and sites give juicy peach and passionfruit-like notes.

Cantine Provero’s Arneis features a medium-full body with fresh aromatics, notes of melon, stone fruit and almond, with a delicate and dry finish.
