Roero Arneis DOCG 2013 - Fabrizio Battaglino

September 26, 2011

Roero is not only the country where the best piedmontese red wines come from, but also the one that gives us prestigious whites like the Roero Arneis 2013 d.o.c.g., from Fabrizio Battaglino.

Arneis is a white grape variety grown in Piedmont since the 15th Century which has to be served at a temperature of 8-10 degrees to enhance and make acidity and sapidity more pleasant, both very important components in white wines.

It is a pale yellow wine with amber shadows. It has a very delicate perfume full of fruity apple and peach hints and a grassy-flowery ending that reminds us the camomile.

The taste is fine and fresh, well balanced, fruity and quite warm for being a white (13 degrees).

It is a still wine, to be consumed when young. It’s really good if combined with aperitifs and appetizers as omelettes, salty pies, grilled vegetables, chicken-celery salad, pumpkin souffle etc..or with risottos or fresh pasta with seafood sauce.

You can also try it with raw ham and parmesan‘s slices; I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!
