Giovanni Almondo's Vigne Sparse Arneis Roero DOCG 2022 is a notable representation of Roero's Arneis. The wine is produced from various plots, capturing the distinctive characteristics of the region. The Arneis grapes are grown on sandy, acidic soils situated 390 meters above sea level in the southern Piedmont area. The unique combination of constant wind, high altitude, sun exposure, and soil acidity contributes to the wine's fresh, lively, and savory style. In terms of appearance, the wine exhibits a crystalline, straw-yellow color with greenish reflections. The aroma is intense and complex, featuring notes of yellow flowers, elderberry, minerals, and a hint of brackishness. On the palate, it is dry, warm, soft, fresh, and savory, offering a full-bodied and well-balanced experience. The wine leaves a lasting impression with its intense and persistent flavors. Overall, it is harmonious and recommended for pairing with various dishes, such as fettuccine with duck breast white sauce, Saltimbocca alla romana, risotto with asparagus or four cheeses, as well as pizzas. It also complements both fresh and dried fruits.
