Collina San Ponzio Arneis
Tasting Notes: A full bodied white-wine with a rich bouquet of exotic fruit and flowers. Flavors of pineapple, ripe orange melon, peach, and a hint of almonds. It is fresh, elegant, and well balanced with a persistent finish.
If you aren’t familiar with Arneis, then this is a perfect introduction. A white wine grape from Barolo that is notoriously difficult to grow. Because of this, good wines from this grape are often on the pricier end. But Barolo producer Collina San Ponzio has worked magic and created a deliciously authentic and high-quality Arneis that sells for under $20!
Founded in 1878 by Pietro Balocco, Collina San Ponzio has a long and rich history of winemaking. They’ve followed the same philosophy since their creation: create a synergy between the vineyard and the winemaker to protect and to value the distinct personality of their grapevines. While they continue to innovate and adapt modern techniques, they respect the traditions of their founders. This love of wine and knowledge of the industry is evident in every bottle they produce.
