Wine of the Day: Vietti Roero Arneis DOCG

From the rolling hills of Roero, northwest of Alba, the land of white tuffles, in Italy’s Piemonte, the difficult to grow variety, Arneis, shines with a fresh character and crisp minerality. Historically the white wine had been used as a blending grape, softening the robust tannins of the region’s red wines, but today winemakers are opting to craft succulent, refreshing stand-alone white wines from the Italian variety. Vietti Roero Arneis DOCG ($25) is zesty and bright, melding juicy lemon-lime with white peach, nectarine, and tangerine. Produced without the use of oak, allowing the freshness and clean fruity aromas and flavors to shine. With that, it is a wine to drink young, while it is clean, bright, and fresh, ideal as an aperitif wine or to enjoy with white fish or light pasta dishes. #Cheers
