Dear Wine Lover,
As summer is approaching us faster and faster, the time is now to stock up your summer wines. I`d like to offer you probably the best Arneis on planet earth the Roero Arneis D.O.C.G form Bruno Giacosa!
Bruno Giacosa is obviously a very famous producer, even though they are mostly credited for their outstanding Barolo and Barbaresco`s. The Arneis never had to hide behind them, because its such a refreshing, mineral and fruitdriven wine. No surprise that the very respected and Robert Parkers reviewer for Italy, Monica Larner noted: This is a beautiful white wine and awarded the 2016 Vintage with 92+ Points
Arneis is a white wine grape variety from Italy's much-respected Piedmont wine region. Arneis has been rescued from the verge of extinction and is now enjoying something of a revival. By the 1960s, just a few hectares of Arneis vines remained, and only a handful of producers were making the wine. Among them Bruno Giacosa, a true Piedmonts of the old stamp. When you try Signor Giacosa wines it is tacitly understood that any comment is entirely superfluous. His wines speak for themselves and are simply great, his Roero Arneis is no exception.
Roero Arneis is the perfect wine for your summer meals and just perfect as an aperitivo wine for sunny days. For little more than CHF 20.00 you can be nothing wrong by trying some:
75.0 cl Roero Arneis - Giacosa Bruno - 2016 CHF 24.00 (CHF 25.85 Vat incl)
For 12 bottles or more CHF 19.00 (CHF 20.45 Vat incl.)
For 36 bottles or more CHF 18.00 (CHF 19.40 Vat incl.)
For 60 bottles or more CHF 17.00 (CHF 18.30 Vat incl.)
Robert Parker 92+ points: The 2016 Roero Arneis was bottled on Saint Valentine's Day and that's a fitting touch. Some 140,000 bottles were made, which is more than average. This is a fresh and buoyant wine that is loaded with tangy tropical fruit, pineapple and honeydew melon. The wine's intensity is exuberant, pronounced and refreshing. Dustings of fine mineral and salty limestone characteristics give the wine a brilliant sense of polish and crispness. Bruna Giacosa tells me the fruit harvested in 2016 was beautiful. She distinctly remembers the perfumes of the Arneis grapes as they came into the winery on the back of a truck during harvest. This is a beautiful white wine. Drink from 2017 2020.
