“Giacosa Arneis • 16 Years And Counting!”

16 Years And Counting • An EWM Favorite!

By David Gettenberg

At home, I always have a few bottles of this delicious Piedmont white chilled.  In fact, I enjoyed it last night and it is one of the best vintages I can remember - the subtle fruit and vibrant acidity makes it a food pairing darling.

I was first introduced to Giacosa's Arneis sixteen years ago and have been a fan ever since!  The 2018 is particularly stunning.

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

"This is a longtime favorite, due to its purity of fruit and freshness, showing green-papaya, lime, lemon and green-apple character. Medium body. Crisp acidity. No wood. Steely and fruity at the end. Drink now." 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!
