Arneis is an indigenous Italian grape almost exclusively grown in Piedmont. During the 1960s, the Arneis grape faced extinction because of its low yields and difficulty to grow, not to mention that red wines from Piemonte were far more popular. Nevertheless, Arneis wines are stunningly elegant, dry and light to medium-bodied. Currently used to craft single varietal wines, Arneis was traditionally used in blends. Fresh, crisp, and gently mineral, Arneis wines boast fragrances of exotic fruit and flowers and flavours of apricot, pear and hazelnut.
