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. Their Vigne Sparse, offers readers probably the best bottle of Arneis for under $20 (on case orders). Their Le Rive is the gold standard of Italian white wine.
The new 2021 releases from the Almondo family are sensational. They come roaring right out of the gates, with tremendous energy and aromas flowing from the bottle. Both of these wines are beautifully made and structured with pristine, bright fruit, aromas of white flowers, almonds and a touch splash of sage. Pair that with the concentrated peach and citrus fruit and the Almondo’s signature mineral streak and you have a recipe for great success.
Each six-pack comes with 3 bottles each of the following wines:
Giovanni Almondo Roero Arneis Sparse 2021
Almondo Roero Arneis Bricco delle Ciliegie 2021

The 2020 Roero Arneis Bricco delle Ciliegie is layered and creamy, yet retains terrific freshness throughout. Pear, ginger, white flowers and a hint of spice lend notable character to this inviting, compelling Arneis. Bricco delle Ciliegie is one of the great whites of Italy.
The 2018 is fresh off the temp-controlled boat and is once again, a sensory firework show.

Flat out delicious by itself as an aperitif or a terrific complement to just about anything fried or from the sea.
