2008 Malvira Roero Arneis

Arneis is a white grape varietal common in the Piemonte region of Italy.  Unfortunately it is not that popular in the UK or the US which is a real shame.  I tried the 2008 Malvira last night and was very impressed.  Lovely peach, fruity taste.  A real white wine quaffer.  This should be bought in cases and ready to drink now. Perfect for the summer or any time of the year for that matter.  I served this with Jerk Tuna Steaks grilled on the Weber….Antonio Gallioni from Wine Advocate is also a fan:

“The 2008 Roero Arneis Renesio is a touch more focused and energetic than the Trinita. White peaches, flowers, almonds and spices meld together seamlessly with notable purity in this pretty Arneis. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.  88pts

 Available at Waitrose for only 10£ a bottle….very good value, and a nice alternative to Chardonnay….
