Arneis 2016

Arneis 2016

Our very own "little rascal".  Originally hailing from the Piedmont region of Italy, this uncommon white grape yields a light, refreshing white wine that is uncommonly delicious.

This is a dry, light-to-medium bodied white wine with a pale lemon color in the glass. The nose is fresh and bright with hints of pear, citrus and green fruit. On the palate the wine is crisp and dry with good acidity and mineral notes.

The 2016 vintage of this wine was intended to showcase the lighter, crisper side of Arneis. It displays the varietal characteristic pear but with some more flinty and kiwi characteristics. This is a wonderfully versatile food wine, with great firm texture and a lovely, long finish.
