Literally meaning “little rascal” in Piemontese, this grape was named for its unpredictable ripening and difficulty to grow. Planted for centuries in Italy’s Piedmont region, Arneis has nowadays become quite fashionable amongst white wine connoisseurs and Italophiles alike. On this side of the pond, Arneis is primarily grown in Sonoma and the Willamette Valley. Lot 589 is an absolutely mouthwatering introduction to this delicious Italian grape.
Sourced from a winery in Carneros that almost exclusively produces small-batch releases, this wine was whole cluster pressed and fermented at low temperature in 100% stainless to maintain aromatic qualities and brightness of fruit. With over six months in bottle, this wine has come together beautifully, delivering a seamless transition from nose to palate.
Awesome Cal Ital Varietal
My white wine drinker loves this wine . We usually buy Italian producers but this one from Sonoma is excellent. Love to drink all the time with all kinds of food.
Great everyday wine
Summer/Winter - one of my favorite whites... crisp... dry...
Crisp wine , citrus fruit with a chalky finish
Crisp wine , citrus fruit with a chalky finish. Love this wine, glad I bought a case. Not sweet, and dry , how wee like our whites. A great value, great alone or with cheese. Too bad it sold out.
Hope it comes back
Great in the summer with a warm breeze and a light dinner on the deck. Nice and crisp.
Tart and fruity
This is a tart and fruity wine ideal for summer on the deck in Wisconsin, which is when I drank it! Now, we have November, with the clocks being set back yesterday, and unless I leave work at noon, and put on my winter "bubble" jacket, there is no more deck time until May! Enjoyed this wine.
DRY and fruity
Slight citrus taste.
Dry almost sour.
Good cold and at room temperature.
Pleasant But Very Light
Floral notes with some minerality. Do let it come to room temperature. It was a nice complement to albacore tuna salad, but would be much too light for a stronger or more seasoned fish, or even for shrimp.
Light Italian White
A nice summer white wine. Fruity and light with a touch of sweetness. Very drinkable wine on a warn summer day.
Still a favorite
Have had this wine before. It is a hit for parties around the pool. Have only one person (a red wine snob) not like it. The sharpness of the fruit comes thru very clean and crisp.
Light and crisp
Tropical fruit - not an overt lemon taste but think light citrus. Flinty. Crisp, aromatic and light. This is not some bland pinot grigio.
