Arneis is an old, native Southern Piedmont grape-variety which is synonymous in particular with the hills of the Roero. With its intense, straw-yellow hues, nose of fresh fruit and flowers like chamomile, and delicate spicy notes reminiscent of white pepper, Ansì Arneis encapsulates the Casina Bric philosophy of working vineyards and native varieties with patience and dedication in terroirs as unique as the Langhe and Roero.
Intense straw yellow, showing fresh fruit and wild flowers on the nose blending nicely with the wine’s minerality and freshness. On the mouth it is full-bodied, round and lingering. An easy-drinking wine with the structure to ensure lengthy development over time.
As with Casina Bric’s other wines, rather than replicating other wines already available on the market, Arneis Ansì clearly sets out to offer consumers a unique product that reflects the value of native vines such as Arneis and the local terroir. A perfect wine for pairing with starters and fish, and serving as an aperitif accompanied by semi-soft cheeses.
