Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis 2017
Winemaker Notes :
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Roero|
James SucklingThis is very beautiful. Lime-skin, light-pear and lemon aromas and mineral undertones. Full-bodied, dense and very intense with layers of fruit and flavor. Extremely long finish. Fantastic density and richness, yet always crisp and lively. Drink now.
Wine AdvocateFrom a hot vintage, the 2017 Roero Arneis is a rich and pulpy white wine with bright fruit definition. The bouquet delivers tropical fruit, papaya and apricot. The mouthfeel is rich with thick fruit flavors. This vintage shows superior structure. But an expert winemaking hand is clearly at play, because that sunny ripeness falls short of tasting jammy or too heavy. Bruna Giacosa tells me that because of reduced yields, it proved challenging to source enough fruit to make this wine. Drink this fruit-forward white wine within the next few years.
Wine SpectatorLemon, tangerine, white flower and mineral aromas and flavors power this sleek, focused white, backed by a vibrant structure. Builds to a long finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases imported.
