Vietti Roero Arneis Southern Hemisphere Chile Chile 2009
From my online review of Vietti Roero Arneis 2009 at http://www.dalluva.com/wine-journal/5-italian-wines-that-know-how-to-party/ If you like Pinot Grigio, think of Vietti Roero Arneis 2009 as its more fresh, extroverted friend – the perfect guest everyone likes to have around at a party. Crisp green apples, grapefruit, and pears come through on the palate of this off-dry (not sweet) white, and the nose has sexy (yes, sexy) hints of mint and jasmine. If you’re a fan of Pinot Grigio or like Sauvignon Blanc, you’ll fall in love with Vietti’s Roero Arneis. Roero Arneis likes to be consumed young, so it’s perfect for summer food fair so long as you’re drinking the latest vintage. Pair this lovely with anything you’d pair with Sauvignon Blanc – Grilled and roasted chicken and game birds, sautéed scallops, anything with goat cheese, and summer vegetable dishes like insalata caprese, grilled peppers, roasted asparagus. This even goes with many Tex-Mex dishes. Enlighten and impress your guests by adding Vietti Roero Arneis 2009 to your shopping list. I’m pretty sure you’ll become a lifelong fan of this wine.
