2010 Marco Porello "Camestri" Arneis Roero (Previously $17)

SKU #1068040

This lovely summer white is a pale yellow color with a green glint and hard-to-define aroma of grass, herbs, tangerine, and wet stones. It's medium weight in the mouth with good lively acidity and a long, very clean finish. This one's an excellent general-purpose aperitif or wine for antipasti, salame and green olives.

Great aromatics, a touch on minerality, fresh acidity; this is a perfect wine to start an evening with.

I love Arneis from the Roero, this grape and region get along very well. I have made many friends with this producer over the past few years that K & L has been carrying it. The first thing that hits your tongue is white peaches then lots of mineratily, balanced with a fare amount of acidity and very long finish. This is the main white grape of Piedmont, and is exactly what you want on a warm evening, this wine is at its best when served with the antipasti, stuffed peppers or fettuccini alfredo!

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world.

Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.

- Piedmont is in the Northwestern region of Italy, bordering France and Switzerland. Piedmont is predominantly a plain where the water flows from the Swiss and French Alps to form the headwaters of the Po river. The major wine producing areas are in the southern portion of the region in the hills known as the "Langhe". Here the people speak a dialect that is 1/3 French and 2/3 Italian that portrays their historical roots. Their cuisine is one of the most creative and interesting in Italy. Nebbiolo is the King grape here, producing Barolo and Barbaresco. In addition, the Barbera and Dolcetto are the workhorse grapes that produce the largest quantity of wine. Piedmont is predominantly a red wine producing area. There are a few whites made in Piedmont, and the Moscato grape produces a large volume of sweet, semi-sweet and sparkling wines as well.
