2016 Roero Arneis, Tenuta Neirano, Piedmont, Italy
Made from the Arneis grape, a local to the Roero district of Piedmont in Northern Italy and means “little rascal” in Piemontese dialect, so named because it can be difficult to grow. This wine is a pale lemon colour with a greenish tinge. The palate is crisp and clean with notes of green apple, lemon and white blossom. Fruity and easy drinking, this wine has a lovely, harmonious acidity and a lingering fruit-forward finish.
13.5% ABV. Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
Owned by the Sperone family, an ancient 17th century villa was built on top of a hill in Casalotto di Mombaruzzo, near Asti, in the heart of Monferrato, Piedmont. Tenute Neirano`s origins began when Antonio Sperone began making wine in 1911, and is now a wine-growing and wine-producing estate of great importance which combines rural tradition and modern technology.
