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.

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.
