Vietti Roero Arneis 2022

Piedmont, ItalyLook for a distinctively straw yellow colour. The nose is fresh and aromatic, mixing herbs, lemons, and mineral. Attractively dry and medium bodied, it has a wonderfully complex aura of honeysuckle and salinity. Best with any savoury sage or dried herb stuffed pasta in a brown butter sauce or pesto. The Vietti Arneis comes from select vineyards, grown over limestone and clay rich soil, in the municipality of Santo Stefano Roero in Roero. The average vine age is around 30 years. The grapes are fermented very slowly at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks, and halfway through the process, the tank is hermetically sealed to reabsorb a small amount of natural CO2. There is no malolactic fermentation, and the wine remains on its lees in tank to keep it super fresh until it is bottled.Tasted: 15 February 2024Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
