In the 16th century the Piedmontese followed their Easter pagan ritual of the questa della uova with a sort of trick or treat where cheerful groups would go from farmhouse to farmhouse singing “non fatemi anadar via senza una bottiglia di Arneis!” (don’t make me go without giving me a bottle of Arneis!)……we have to agree!
Hand picked, whole bunch pressed and left to ferment with wild yeast in old French oak barriques, this Arneis displays classic delicate scents of flowers and fruit with almond nuances and an extra depth of complexity and heightened mouthfeel.
- VIC - Yarra Valley
A very ripe example of the variety, delving in to stone fruits, straw and fig; the palate is unctuous and rich, lacking the vitality often looked for in arneis, but a pleasant enough wine, regardless. Rating 87 - Drink by 2015, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2013).
