Additional Information on Luca Bosio Vineyards Langhe Arneis 2015

Winery Luca Bosio Vineyards

Varietal: Arneis

High in the Piedmont hills, Italian wineries have been cultivating Arneis grapes for centuries. The Arneis grape is renowned for its beautiful floral aromas, and strong flavors of orchard fruits and apricots, making it a particularly boisterous white wine ideal for pairing with a wide range of foods. However, the Arneis is a notoriously difficult grape to grow properly, as it is highly sensitive to the sun and quickly over-ripens, losing its acidity and distinctive flavors It is also prone to mildew and several types of fungus, making it a real challenge for vintners, but a challenge more and more are taking up due to the excellence of the grape in question. In several New World countries, wineries have recently started cultivating Arneis varietal grapes, and its popularity is continuing to grow.

Region: Piedmont

The region of Piedmont in the cool, breezy north-western part of Italy is renowned throughout the world for high quality, flavorful and delicious red wines, and for the elegant and refined sparkling wines such as Asti which typify the area. The region is located at the foothills of the Alps, close to the French and Swiss borders, and benefits from some interesting micro-climates formed by its proximity to the mountain range. The key grapes for the fine red wines of Piedmont are Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera – all powerful varietals which are packed full of a range of fruit flavors and which have an affinity for oak making them ideal for aging When it comes to the sparkling Asti, wineries cultivate plenty of Moscato grapes, whose relative transparency make them ideal for expressing their terroir and providing some interesting flavors in the bottle.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
