Almondo Roero Arneis Bricco Delle Ciliegie 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Giovanni Almondo is a family estate that has created a considerable reputation from twelve hectares, and is unusual in Piedmont for offering whites and reds of equal renown. Almondo’s Arneis vines are to be found on the highest slopes of the estate, at 380 metres above sea level, on sandy soil. The Bricco delle Ciliegie is a single site, notable for its easterly exposure, which gives the vines plentiful morning sun and protects them from the fierce afternoon heat. A vibrant expression of Arneis, this wine shows aromas of apricot, greengage and red apple; a beautifully textured palate with a hint of almond, and a long elegant finish.
