The 2016 Roero Arneis was bottled on Saint Valentine's Day and that's a fitting touch. Some 140,000 bottles were made, which is more than average. This is a fresh and buoyant wine that is loaded with tangy tropical fruit, pineapple and honeydew melon. The wine's intensity is exuberant, pronounced and refreshing. Dustings of fine mineral and salty limestone characteristics give the wine a brilliant sense of polish and crispness. Bruna Giacosa tells me the fruit harvested in 2016 was beautiful. She distinctly remembers the perfumes of the Arneis grapes as they came into the winery on the back of a truck during harvest. This is a beautiful white wine.

Floral and peach aromas give way to peach, melon and citrus flavors in this harmonious, juicy white. Impeccably balanced and very drinkable, with a long, delicate aftertaste.

2016 Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis - Giacosa's Arneis is delicious and at the fuller bodied end of the spectrum for Arneis. A great summer wine for sipping on a dock or deck but equally enjoyable year round as a first course white.

Italian dry white wine - Pleasing wine, somewhat like a Sauvignon blanc but fuller
