Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Arneis is a fun grape to explore for fans of other light, aromatic whites. Its hinterland is Piedmont, also the home to Barbaresco, Moscato D'Asti, and Barolo. It is vastly different than the others. It is dry, light, and gently perfumed.
This Arneis has a soft lemony-yellow colouration.
Don't overchill it, or you'll miss some of the more interesting aromatics. It is typical of Arneis, in that it has classic flavours of lemon zest and fresh, green herbs (sage,sorrel, scrub herbs too).
Those flavours are consistent on the palate too - lots of citrus and fresh herbalness. It also has a blanched almond quality that comes out as it has a chance to breathe. Plenty of apricot and nectarine. Moderate acidity.
Pair it with a spinach salad with tangerines and young cheese.
Almost extinct back in the 1960s, the Italian white grape Arneis is now making a comeback, especially in Piedmont's region of Roero. Lots of acidity. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
