2015 Cascina Val del Prete "Luèt" Arneis Roero

SKU #1281638 Jancis Robinson

 Aged on the lees for four months. Unexpectedly scented with tea-leaf aromas. Reasonably pretty.  (5/2016)

Wine Enthusiast

 Lovely floral scents of black locust flower, orange blossom and a whiff of aromatic herb float out of the glass. The round but elegantly structured palate offers white peach, white currant, sage and mineral. Soft acidity lifts the creamy flavors.  (7/2016)

Not only is this a top tier Arneis but also it's certified organic as well as biodynamic. It's one of the more complex Arneis' we've encountered thanks to some serious farming and extended lees contact in the winery. It offers a wonderful array of florals, subtle orchard fruits and saline and crisp acidity that carries it to a refreshing finish. There's a bit more texture and complexity to this wine than we expected and we think you'll agree. Pair with fish, chicken, eggs and vegetables.

- 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.


- 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.
