User Reviews for Cantine Giacomo Ascheri Langhe Arneis DOC

Winemaker's Notes:

Made from the Arneis grape, which means 'little rascal' in Italian dialect and from the Langhe region which is in North West Italy, South of Turin. Ascheri’s ethos is clear; it is the expression of the vineyard, the grape and the climate that he is capturing, not his winemaking prowess. It works and his wines express elegance and refinement that is often over looked in today’s ‘instant fix’ world. Ascheri’s wines are consistently excellent, and it is worth noting his Barbera Vigna Fontanelle, Dolcetto d’Alba Vigna Nirane and the Arneis (similar to Pinot Blanc) from the Roero hills are all drinking superbly, and provide a good introduction to his style. It was harvested between the 10th and 20th September and fermented for 6 days at 16° in stainless steel. Ageing comprises 4 months in steel and at least 2 months in bottle before release. There is no oak contact for this wine. Pale straw in colour with a fresh bouquet offering fruity, slightly spicy notes. Delicate and dry, with great freshness and remarkable balance and finesse. Excellent as an aperitif but also very good with hors d’oeuvres or fish.
