Matteo Correggia Roero Arneis 2017

Alba, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyRoero’s ancient sandy marine soils are the key to this high acid arneis that in Piemontesi dialect translates to ‘little rascal.’ It’s an ode to the difficult to ripen grape because when it reaches full ripeness, the acidity drops quickly. To combat this challenge there is an early pick at Correggia to conserve the acids that brings this wine alive. A perfectly juicy white with melon/peach/apricot, with a squeeze of mineral, wet stone, green apple and lemon.Tasted: 02 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 31.99 private wine stores AB 22.00 Producer: Azienda Agricola Matteo CorreggiaDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
