Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Arneis has officially found a special spot in our winemaker’s heart. Known as the “little rascal” in Piedmont, Italy where it originated, this varietal can be somewhat difficult to grow. We’ve found this AZ planting to make amazingly complex wines with gorgeous lime, pear, apple and white blossom characters complemented by an elegant texture. We enhanced the texture this year by fermenting in neutral French oak.
