Bruno Giacosa Arneis Roero 2006

Member Review by Eric Guido:

A perfect pairing for the Bagna Cauda. It’s bright fruit and acidity cut through the Bagna Cuada and refreshed the palate for the vegetables that accompanied the dish. While the scents of flowers, peaches, and almonds were a welcome addition to this light, refreshing course. I have only a few of these left and I’ve heard that Arneis is supposed to age poorly but this bottle showed no signs of going downhill. More than one guest complimented the Arneis chased by the Broccoli Rabe dipped in Bagna Cuada.

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves.

The story starts in a simple way, with the native varietals of the Langa and Roero regions and vineyards cultivated with loving care. It continues with pure, meticulous vinification, with ageing in grand oak barrels and with unforgettable Reserves. But it also includes, naturally enough, the choice not to bottle those mediocre vintages deemed unworthy of vinification. Bruno’s art encompasses passion and clear judgement but, above all, the utmost respect for his product, its admirers and for the beautiful countryside where he and his family were born and raised. The Azienda Agricola Falletto Winery comprises twenty hectares of vineyards within the Serralunga d'Alba, La Morra and Barbaresco areas. The vine growing and wine making processes are followed through with care from beginning to end, culminating with vinification and ageing within our cellars in Neive. Some of our wine is produced with grapes grown by those farmers who have always worked our winery and whose prestigious vineyards truly deserve the ‘Bruno Giacosa’ label. Read less

a terrific summer drink. pale yellow- peaches, lemon and minerals on the nose- lively, crisp palate- refreshing.

Made entirely from the white Arneis grape, this is vinified and aged in stainless steel. "Arneis" means difficult or stubborn, an apt characteristic for this variety as its delicate skin makes it, like Pinot Noir, a difficult grape to grow really well. This wine from Giacosa is an accomplished example, perfectly fragrant with pear skins, almonds and white flowers.
