The 2021 Roero Arneis Bricco delle Ciliegie is a reference point white for the appellation. White orchard fruit, flowers, mint and green apple lend freshness to a chiseled, mid-weight white that captures the essence of what Arneis is. Sweet floral accents lift the finish effortlessly. I never miss a chance to drink Bricco delle Ciliegie, nor should you.

My Tasting Note
Lemon yellow color, medium.
Citrusy, with lemon fruit, orange peel, and some tangy peach, floral white flowers, chalky mineral tones, all med+ on the nose and palate.  It has an extra touch of delicious phenolic bitterness from the winemaking process that adds further complexity.  This comes out to play with very good persistence and is about as good as any Arneis I have had, even the benchmark from Giacosa.
