Fermented in SS and neutral oak then blended Floral, mineral and spicy on the nose with balsamic notes that are a bit peppery and dominating, out of place even though this does smell rather seaside-like. Bright, fresh and precision on entry then turning a bit rounder on the mid-palate with modest mineral tinged apple and white fruit flavors that have an attractive perfume in the mouth but are only moderately intense, with a short, low scaled finish that shows some astringency. 86pts

Winemaker's Notes:

"A light straw color with burnished highlights of gold foretells of 2011 Arneis’ vibrant character. An alluring floral nose of acacia and chamomile that mingle with hints of apple and sandalwood waft from the glass with a swirl. Medium bodied, Arneis envelopes the palate with just tree-picked pear flavor and texture, then refreshes with apricot and clementine and a long and lingering spice component of fennel and tea. This is a persistent wine, rich in body, layered in texture and with an exotic mélange of stone fruits, minerality and spice that finishes with a reminder of perfectly baked Madeleines.Arneis is a delightful aperitif, but also a wine with enough body and personality to hold its own with a wide range of strongly flavored food – prosciutto, pesto, grilled seafood. Arneis is also a white wine that will continue to evolve with a few years of cellar aging. Serve just chilled." -Winery
