Almondo Roero Arneis Bricco delle Ciliegie 2021

$26.00

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 Ciliegie, are rooted in sand that covers an old ocean bed.

The new 2021 release from the Almondos comes roaring right out of the greats, with tremendous energy and aromas flowing from the bottle.  Clean, bright notes of white flowers, almonds and a touch of sage with a generous mid-palate that gives 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. Last year it earned a rave 91-point review from Vinous making supply even harder to get a hold of. This year, they’ve outdone themselves with a 92-point beauty that Antonio Galloni fawned over. Just read his review below:

“The 2021 Roero Arneis Bricco delle Ciliegie is a reference point white for the appelalation. 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.”

The 2018 is fresh off the temp-controlled boat and is once again, a sensory firework show.
