2016 Vietti Arneis Roero

SKU #1316043 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 Roero Arneis offers an irresistible taste profile that is beautifully zesty and fresh. The bouquet exhibits fruit, honeydew melon and a determined layer of salty marine mineral. The wine shines in the glass thanks to its crystalline luminosity. With these warm summer months upon us, this is an excellent and deeply satisfying choice. (ML) 90+  (6/2017)

The nose is full of apple blossom, ripe pear and jasmine and while that sounds tres exotic the nose is actually really vinous. On the palate the 2016 vintage shows its ripeness but Vietti's Arneis has excellent balance and acidity to support the extra mid palate richness. It finishes clean, focused and gives you the sense that you had a wine of substance, perfect for a pasta primavera or grilled shrimp.
Drink from 2017 to 2019

Country:

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. 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.

Sub-Region:

Piedmont

- 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.
