There was a time when the Arneis grape was nearly extinct. Long time a part of the wine culture in Piemonte, Arneis had slowly dwindled to the brink of oblivion, but then the Cornarea estate came along in 1974 and revived it. Macerated in whole bunches and vinified without malolactic fermentation, the 2012 Cornarea Roero Arneis offers a sunny wine with strong lime, Poire William and grapefruit notes, but don’t think this wine is simple or lacking in complexity. Accompanying those white fruit and citrus notes is a salty minerality. A great alternative to Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc, Arneis in Cornarea’s hands seems to capture the best of these great varieties have to offer. Food-friendly and surprisingly sturdy in structure, this Roero Arneis can accompany a wide range of foods, from Vitello Tonnato to Robiola cheese to BBQ or shellfish.
