2020 Langhe Arneis, Monchiero, Piemonte
2020 Langhe Arneis, Monchiero, Piemonte
A delightful, characterful white from Piedmont. Delicate flavours of crisp green apples, a lovely hint of minerality and a refreshing finish. Something a little different, and hugely enjoyable.
"Gavi, grillo, falanghina and fiano; the list of wonderfully fresh, aromatic and food friendly Italian whites just keeps going and here is one more to add to the list and dare I say it might just possibly be the best one of all; Arneis.
Translated loosely, Arneis, means "little rascal" and is a reference to its characteristic trait of being a hard variety to grow. However, as is often the case with the most challenging things the results are very much worth the effort. Arneis is primarily grown in the northern province of Piedmont where it produces an aromatic white with a wonderful crisp orchard mix of apples and pears.
A wine to be enjoyed young and fresh, the latest 2020 vintage is just the thing to get your summer dining started, be it with a salad, some shellfish, or a light creamy pasta dish.
Produced by the family owned Monchiero estate, who have been making wine since the 1950s, this is certainly my no.1 recommendation as your next new white wine to try."
In Castiglione Falleto, in the heart of the Barolo region, the Monchiero family established their wine business in the 1950s, initially only selling their grapes, but by the 1970s making their own wine.
Vittorio Monchiero has been at the helm since the 1980s, whilst his son Luca has recently joined the business.
Perfumed white grape variety found in Italy's NW region of Piemonte. A low yielding, low acidity grape, Arneis is best drunk young and is rapidly gaining a following amongst Italy's growing number of white wine followers.
