Vietti Roero Arneis DOCG 2016
The history of Vietti can be traced back to the 19th century, when Mario Vietti made his first wines, selling most of his production to local villagers.
Today, Vietti is one of the first rank of Barolo producers and its wines are highly sought-after. The single-vineyard wines are all astonishing but the Castiglione (made from fruit sourced from across Vietti’s sites) is our favourite: a textbook Barolo with elegance, power, fruit and spice.
Pale straw yellow color with fresh floral, citrus and melon aromas with hints of almond. An unoaked, dry, medium bodied white wine with crisp acidity, the Arneis is well-balanced, elegant wine with good complexity and a lingering finish.
As an aperitif with light hors d’oeuvres, crudités, seafood, salads, light soups, simply prepared veal, pork, chicken and creamy cheese.
