Vietti 2017 Roero Arneis
100% Arneis | Alc: 13.5% – Crisp and Smooth
Santo Stefano Roero, Piedmont, Italy
Pale straw yellow color with fresh floral, citrus and melon aromas with hints of almond. An unoaked, dry, medium bodied white wine with crisp acidity, the Arneis is well-balanced, elegant wine with good complexity and a lingering finish.
Pair as an aperitif with light hors d’oeuvres, crudités, seafood, salads, light soups, simply prepared veal, pork, chicken and creamy cheese.
“As one of the best quality-minded estates in Barolo, Vietti has little claim to winemaking fame in the Roero appellation. Regardless, the 2017 Roero Arneis is one of the most successful interpretations of this white wine on the market today. It falls under that Vietti magic wand. The bouquet is true to the Arneis variety with aromas of bright citrus, white peach, wild sage, ash and natural rubber. The wine’s appearance is luminous and bright. Drink this charming and refreshing white wine within the next two years. ” 91+ Pts – Wine Advocate
