Bruno Giacosa, Roero Arneis
11 Yrs And Counting | Piedmont's Perfect White!
April 11, 2017
LIMITED QUANTITIES
This is a new vintage of my favorite Piedmont white. 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 ready to pair with my favorite piece of fish or pesto dish.
    "The brilliant Bruno Giacosa fashions the finest Arneis...this is my favorite white wine of Piedmont." Robert Parker
    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!
    Though this wine may be hard to grow, it is impossible to put down. Unoaked, this beauty has a natural creamy weight and texture about it that rivals many white Burgundies. The acidity is crisp and refreshing and despite being stainless steel fermented, the wine has depth and character that makes it stand out as one of our favorite versatile white wines."This is what Arneis should be...a benchmark for Arneis...a go-to Italian white." James Suckling
    Eleven years and counting, I have never been disappointed by a Giacosa Arneis! 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 light pesto pasta.

Summary

Released only once a year, this stunning Italian white is made from 100% Arneis and vinified in stainless steel. The nose reveals subtle aromas of apple, pear and peach. This is a refreshing Piedmont white wine with lasting acidity on the finish. Enjoy all year round, but in particular Spring and Summer with a wide variety of foods, especially seafood and light pasta. Don't over chill this little treasure as you'll "chill out" the subtle nuances.
