Mission Briefing

Codename:

Little Rascal

Originally from the Piedmont region, in Italy, Arneis is a white grape varietal that is most commonly found in the hills of Roero, to the northwest of Alba. In Piemontese, Arneis means, “Little Rascal”. This, given how difficult it is to grow in the region. In the United States, this crisp, floral varietal is seldom grown. In the US, as in Italy, wines made from this varietal tend toward dry and crisp, with a full body and plenty of fruit and floral notes.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Light golden yellow, with perfect clarity and glinting that catch the light as you swirl the wine. After it settles, which it does quickly, tall, closely-spaced tears sweep swiftly down the glas.

Smell:

Crisp and bright, with steely mixed citrus of lime, lemon and lime zest. Green apple, yellow grapefruit, pineapple, limestone and a most subtle hint of fresh garden herbs follow.

Taste:

Bright and perfectly balanced between sweet and tart. Flavors of mixed citrus, Granny Smith apple, limestone, white flowers, subtle pineapple mirror the wonderful aroma profile.

Finish:

Crisp, clean, fresh and lingering with long-lasting flavors that taper off very slowly, leaving behind a wonderful freshness.

Pairing:
