Arneis

Arneis is a pale colored grape that hails from northwest Italy, or Piedmont region. It can also be found in California, Australia and New Zealand. Arneis means “the little rascal” in Piedmont, where the grape first originated. The name stemmed from the problematic susceptibilities during the growth and harvest of the grape. The yield for the grape can be low and it strains to produce the proper amount of acidity. It is quite vulnerable to powdery yellow mildew. It also has a tendency to become over-ripe if harvested after September. Belonging to the DOCG Roero Arneis in Italy, and is most commonly found in the hills of Roero and northwest of Alba.  It was once only used in combination with the Nebbiolo grape. Because of this, it has received nicknames such as “White Barolo” and even “Nebbiolo Bianco”. Arneis, however, does not come from the same grape family as the Nebbiolo. It was used to mitigate the harshness of the Nebbiolo (to soften the tannins) as well as offer a better nose on the finished product. Arneis presents elevated aromas of white flowers, almond, and pears, and displays medium to full body, apple, pear, and apricot flavors on the palate. Because of these light fruit flavors and delicate aromas, it has often been used to produce sparkling wine or dry, late harvest passito.
