This racy, textural white wine presents a mix of wet stone and sweet yellow apple flavors. Bright and persistent, it is surprisingly rich, almost unctuous, and almost demands a second glass, or a second bottle if you must share it.
Crafted by one of Barolo’s finest producers, this Arneis rocks. It’s loaded with creamy Granny Smith and mineral sensations, accompanied by hints of Alpine herbs. The palate is structured but restrained, with a long, quenching finish. Imported by Masciarelli Wine Co, Moonlight Wine Co.
Campovida’s Mendocino take on a classic Italian white, this Arneis is floral, balancing its high-wire acidity with standout characteristics of lemon, grapefruit and just-ripe pear. This is a perfect wine to pour with light appetizers or for the first sip of the day.
A new wine for Ponzi and Oregon—this is the first commercial Arneis out of the state, and it’s quite good (and smartly packaged in a thin clear bottle). Opens with crisp white peach and nectarine flavors, and a strong hint of buttery toast from some barrel aging. Almondy, creamy and elegant, with honey notes throughout.
Full-bodied but refreshing, it boasts juicy green apple, white pear and mineral sensations. The creamy palate is brightened by fresh acidity, giving this a clean, fresh finish. Sip as an apéritif or pair with pasta topped with vegetable sauces.
This lovely expression of Arneis has an enticing floral and fruit fragrance. The palate is medium-bodied and fresh, with creamy green-apple and exotic fruit sensations. This is perfect with insalata Caprese or fish dishes.
The Ponzi family planted five acres of this unusual Piedmontese white wine grape back in 1990; they have had wonderful success with it ever since. There is a clear almond note—very Italian—under the fruit flavors of pineapple, peach and pear. As it winds into the finish, it adds minerality.
