Very bright white floral and stone fruit perfume gives way to a light toward medium body, very lively acids and a bit of a snappy finish. I wasn't sure what to expect (I'm used to drinking my Arneis in the town of Canale, for maximum freshness :P ), and walked away with pleasant but somewhat mixed feelings about the overall balance between fruit and acid. I can say that I appreciate Vietti's discipline in that he always tries to show the wine nature intended rather than some formulaic also-ran. At the end of the day, this made a decent food wine, but the overall tartness and acid imbalance kept me from truly enjoying it. Drink thru 2010
Pale straw. Floral aromatics struck me the most which gave way to vitamin tabs, powdered rocks. I found a Pinot gris like nose of jelly beans interesting. The palate was of grapefruit, green apple and pencil lead. Very fresh and lively wine!
Popped and poured. Very light yellow color. Nose was a little closed -- mostly fresh citrus. Medium bodied. Great minerality and acidity. Very fresh and light on it's feet. This bottle was paired with an antipasti platter loaded with heavy salamis and cheeses and it was the perfect foil.
This was nice...it offered an array of multiple tropical fruits on the nose, and flavors of citrus, kiwi, and mineral on the palate along a short-medium length finish. Something fun and interesting to try...while I will not be "rushing" back out to buy this...I would gladly buy this again if I felt the urge.
Light golden straw color. The nose has aromas of flowers and citrus. Medium weight on the palate with good acidity and a nice mouth feel. Persistent with flavors of apple, and orange. Paired well with broiled salmon and fried oysters.
Shows the color of golden yellow straw with whimsical aromas of spring rain, white flowers and lime. On the palate you find granny smith apple, green melon, and orange rind, all carried by vibrant acidity with a laser-like focus. The finish shows citrus fruit and leaves your palate feeling cleansed and refreshed.
Considerable lively spritz. Very thin, pale yellow. Nose and palate of pure, tart citrus. Lively acidity. Short and somewhat thin, but exceptionally clean. I've always thought this is a curious but fun wine, almost prosecco with even less sweetness, although I've tasted vintages that had a bit more power than this one. A little tough to match with food -- possibly a good dry cheese. Took to J&K.
Very good, although at first I thought this was way more elegant than the $26 price tag and now I'm not so sure. Peppery, minerally, a little tropical fruit, maybe some melon, underneath. Very dry. Vaguely like a flinty Chablis or a Muscadet. Nice acidity. I would buy again, despite my snarky comment about the price.
Sweet lemon lime on the nose. Palate is more gracious than I remember it being -- somewhat easy entry, and then more tangy, mineral and acidic as the journey goes on. Throughly enjoyable. Makes you feel like eating, how wonderful! Tangy finish, almost feels like it has tannins to it -- spritzy tannins! Flowey, lily of the valley scent to. A real charmer if your willing to be with it.
