Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis 2016

$23.95

The 2016 Roero Arneis was bottled on Saint Valentine's Day and that's a fitting touch... 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. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Honeyed tropical fruits bowl, such an easy flowing wine to drink with great body and texture for some strong flavoured foods. Great value on the wine list at same as retail price.

An excellent vintage w/ a more tactile crisp balance to the usual sour patch kids fruit bowl.

A rich and aromatic version of Arneis from a top-tier producer. With a couple years of age, this one already has plenty of honeyed fruit characteristics. Typically I’m not searching out honeysuckle whites, but this one has more depth, with white peach, walnut, citrus oil and limestone. Richer than most Arneis we experienced in Piemonte.

guava, mango & apricot nectar, cantaloupe and rainbow sherbet invade the palate after a heady floral perfume yet before a pear tart with slivered almond and slight dust of mineral finish #Arneis

Nice, simple, floral and tropical but not as incisive as others I have had. I will be frank - bought for the name and would rather have Vietti in my glass.

This is a crisp, refreshing, delicious white. Lemon, lime, and wet rocks on the palate. Exquisite balance.

WOW - a knockout white from Piemonte region - perfect with razor clams, fish or a simple pasta. Hints of honeysuckle, peaches and bit of butterscotch. Just a lovely bottle of wine that may even get better with some age.
