Winery Marziano Abbona

Varietal: Arneis

Although the Arneis grape varietal is now grown in several New World countries around the world to great effect, its home is in the beautiful and hilly Piedmont region of northern Italy. The name itself translates as 'little rascal', due to the fact that the Arneis varietal is notoriously difficult to cultivate correctly due to its sensitivity to climatic conditions and various mildews. However, with the correct care and attention, it is capable of producing stunning white wines, packed full of delicious flavors of pears and other orchard fruits, often with a tart and acidic apricot taste. The floral aromas that come from the grape are highly sought after, and its aromatic quality makes Arneis grapes a favorite as a blending varietal.

Region: Piedmont

n Italy, the region most closely associated with excellent quality red wines and characterful sparkling wines is Piedmont. This alpine region is located in the north-west of the country, and features beautiful foothills of the impressive mountain range which forms the nearby border between Italy, France and Switzerland. Wineries in Piedmont work with the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive in the warm, dry summers and cooler autumns, as well as the beautifully expressive Moscato grapes which are used for the sparkling Asti wines the region is famed for. For generations, these wineries have perfected the art of aging their red wines, and blending grape varietals to get the most out of each one, leading to a region known all over the world for the exceptional quality of its produce.

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.
