Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.

Arneis

The effort is worth it

There is a nice story behind the name of the Arneis. In the dialect of its home, Piedmont, the word “arnèis” refers to a lively personality who is not easy to get along with. The same applies to the grape variety: to elicit the best from them, you have to know how to tackle them, or else they do not show much personality. For a long time, few were capable – so few that the Arneis nearly died out in the 1970s. Today, it is experiencing a flourishing renaissance, primarily in the Roero and Langhe regions. Ideally, it yields intense white wine with the aroma of ripe pears, subtle acidity and a round mouthfeel. They taste best when young. A great choice for vitello tonnato.
