“Giacosa Arneis • 15 Yrs And Counting!”

Piedmont's Perfect White!

By David Gettenberg

Fifteen Years And Counting!

Whenever I go to an Italian restaurant, this is the first white I look for on a wine list. Even at home, I always have a few bottles chilled as part of my white wine repertoire.

"The brilliant Bruno Giacosa fashions the finest Arneis...this is my favorite white wine of Piedmont." Robert Parker

I was first introduced to Giacosa's Arneis fifteen years ago and have been a fan ever since! The 2017 is particularly stunning with pear, lemon, apple and subtle tropical citrus flavors. With beautiful weight and a natural, creamy texture, the crisp acidity makes it an ideal food pairing wine.

"This is what Arneis should be...a benchmark for Arneis...a go-to Italian white." James Suckling

Arneis, a white grape from Piedmont, translates to "difficult or stubborn" and was given this name due to its delicate skin and unpredictable nature. But, when the conditions are right and a producer like Giacosa handles the vinification properly, look out!

Don't over chill this little treasure as you'll "chill out" the subtle nuances. Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes before serving so the refreshing acidity and true flavors can express themselves.

Enjoy with seafood, chicken, or a simple yet classic pasta dish such as fresh angel hair tossed in garlic and olive oil.
