Arneis from Italy can be an extraordinary white wine when sourced from the best vineyard sites and harvested at just the right the time.
From tasting the 2010 Giovanni Almondo Arneis Bricco delle Ciliegie we could see that had to be the case for this amazing Arneis. It displayed wonderful ripeness that you normally find from Arneis, but it also showed great acidity and minerality which you only find in the best Arneis, especially those that were grown in the Roero region of the Piedmont, like this one.
Stephen Tanzer agree with us rating the 2010 Almondo Arneis with 91 points, which is his highest score ever for an Arneis!

Stephen Tanzer International Wine Cellar 91 Points-- Pale, bright yellow. Ripe, vibrant aromas and flavors of lemon and lime zest, apple, crushed stone, licorice, mint and wild herbs. Penetrating and dense for arneis, with strong minerality contributing to the wine’s tactile impression. Finishes chewy and long, with a repeating note of wild herbs. An unusually serious and persistent Arneis, with no loss of immediate refreshment value.
