Discovered in a carafe at a local trattoria, Kermit Lynch now imports five more wines from this family winery. Arneis is an indigenous Piedmontese white that was traditionally interplanted with Nebbiolo to distract the birds from the lower producing and more prized Nebbiolo grapes. Now that those pesky birds have been eradicated, Arneis is planted by itself on sandy soils of29 the Roero to give an aromatic, fresh and crisp everyday white. Don’t serve this wine right out of the refrigerator as its subtle apricot, fresh almond, green plum and tarragon flavors only start to show themselves between 45 and 50 degrees. About an hour on the counter should do it, or just warm the wine in the glass by cupping your hand around it for a few minutes.
