“Amazing Arneis • Our Favorite Piedmont White!”

A New Find! A New Favorite!

By David Gettenberg

An exceptional new find!

It is not often we are surprised by a new wine. But, two weeks ago, we tasted a stunning Italian white from Ghiomo, an estate located between Langhe and Roero in Piedmont.

Over the last decade - yes, decade! - we have searched high and low for an Arneis to rival one of our perennial favorites, Bruno Giacosa's Arneis.

Though still a huge fan of Giacosa, we have been captivated by the 2017 Ghiomo "Inprimis" Arneis.

This Arneis is at the top of our Piedmont white list.

Arneis, a white grape from Piedmont, translates to "difficult or stubborn" and was given this name due to its delicate skin and unpredictable nature. Though this grape may be hard to grow, when patiently produced, it is impossible to put down.

What was so compelling about this wine?

This Piedmont white has beautiful weight. With crisp, refreshing acidity, the wine has a seductive bouquet of delicate floral notes, white flower, apple, white peach, tomato leaf and a touch of almond. Beautifully balanced, it is a wonderfully versatile white that will pair with any salt-water seafood, grilled vegetables and white meat.

Of course, you can enjoy this absolute beauty the way I have always suggested pairing Giacosa's Arneis... with fresh pasta and homemade pesto.
