Arneis

arneis

The lovely floral yet fickle native white grape variety, Arneis comes from southern Piemonte, just north of Alba.

It is predominantly used in the DOC/DOCG wines of Roero and Langhe and is also grown in Sardinia and Liguria and Sonoma County in California as well as the Willamette Valley in Oregon.

Arneis actually means ‘rascal’ in Italian due to being a tough grape to grow but when it does successfully, it produces beautifully perfumed wines with apricot and pear notes with good acidity.

  2. Okay, so how do we pronounce, “Naoussa?”
