Arneis

The Arneis grape makes its home upon the hillsides of Italy’s southern Piedmont region, where the chalky and sandy soils allow it to develop its distinctive perfumed character. Today, it is most commonly still found in its original home; the Roero Hills, a beautiful viticultural region just to the north of Alba. The name translates as ‘rascal’ - referring to its ability to confound even the most dedicated and patient winemakers. This is a delicate grape, which while being prized for its fine qualities, requires plenty of care and attention.

As was the case with many of Italy’s lesser appreciated native grapes, Arneis almost found itself neglected to extinction in the early part of the 20th century. It’s delicate nature didn’t help, as winemakers at this time were more interested in bulk vines capable of producing high, easily manageable yields. However, it is making a strong comeback, thanks to a new set of grape growing laws designed to protect such species. The wines of Arneis de Roero received their DOC status back in 1989, and in 2006 a DOCG status came along, thanks to a rise in interest in its beautiful tangerine and apricot aromas. Typical flavor profiles include soft orchard fruits, apples and pears, with more than a hint of spice and liquorice.
