Delicious, crisp, clean!

2010 Fratelli Brovia Roero Arneis "Sanche di Vezza" DOCG The 30 year old vines planted on the sandy soils of Vezza d'Alba benefit from the great drainage to add stress to these old vines. From there, the folks at Brovia, just do very little. The grapes are harvested by hand, the wine sits in stainless steel tanks through the spring and then is allowed to rest in bottle a few months and is then released. The 2010 is dripping with lively pear tones, melons, citrus, macadamia and ocean air. Pronounced aromatics, weight that belies its raising and length that will shock you, this is grand white wine from Piedmont. A benchmark wine for sure, enjoy it now through 2014. Region: Vezza d' Alba (Piedmont,) Italy Grape: 100% Arneis Terroir: Sandy soils, south facing @ 340 meters Ageing: 7 - 8 months stainless steel tank (no oak) Drink: Now Cuisine: Fish & light hors d’ouvres or as an aperitif ABV: 13%
