2009 Vietti Arneis

SKU #1057389

With the exception of sparkling Moscato, Piedmonte is not known for its white wines. But when the sun beats down on these northern hills and the temperatures swell above 80° you can be sure the locals are not reaching for a glass of Barolo to cool them off. And Barbera doesn't exactly do the trick, either. Arneis, on the other hand, is exactly what you'd want on a warm evening, as an aperitif before a big dinner or as an accompaniment to appetizers of smoked fish or asparagus crostini. Nearly translucent in color, Vietti's Arneis is medium bodied with dry but rich flavors of peach, pear and green apple. Meant to drink young with a certain degree of abandon. According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Arneis is a pretty, fresh white laced with apples, pears, flowers and mint. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2011. Vietti is one of my favorite producers in Italy." (08/10)

This wine is freakin' great. It smells like a cool autumn day and is bright and clean on the palate. It is way too easy to drink!
