2019 Roero Arneis, Le Rive del Bricco, Giovanni Almondo

From a single plot of the Bricco delle Ciliegie vineyard, planted on a precipitous slope, with some of the estate's oldest vines. More savoury and closed, but with such latent power, this is a remarkable Italian white. The pinnacle of the Arneis grape.

2019 Roero Arneis, Le Rive del Bricco, Giovanni Almondo
Giovanni Almondo

This Roero estate is quickly making headlines as a source of not only great value Nebbiolo, just across the Tanaro river from Barbaresco, but also stunning Arneis, one of the great local white grapes of Piedmont. Run by brothers Stefano and Federico with their father, Domenico, they've 600 years of family history here, though they only started to make wine since removing fruit trees to make way for vines in 1980. It's an estate to watch closely.
