For generations, the Almondo family has tended vines of Arneis, the noble white variety of Piedmont. Their six hectares are at elevation, averaging 350 meters. The old vines of the single vineyard, Bricco delle Ciligie, are rooted in sand that covers an old ocean bed. The wine dazzles right away, with great aromas of white flowers, almonds and a touch of sage. The mid-palate has layers of concentrated peach and citrus fruit with a mineral streak and a long finish. The production is tiny, 300 cases or so, so don’t miss it as it is truly one of Italy’s great white wines.

This is consistently one of the best white wines from Italy that we get in. It’s always crisp, clean and delicious with floral and citrus notes, and a wonderful nutty finish.
A tremendous wine to enjoy on its own, it’s also a great compliment to fish, a cheese and meat board or some light appetizers.
