2017 Bruno Giacosa Arneis Roero

SKU #1406600 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very beautiful. Lime-skin, light-pear and lemon aromas and mineral undertones. Full-bodied, dense and very intense with layers of fruit and flavor. Extremely long finish. Fantastic density and richness, yet always crisp and lively. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From a hot vintage, the 2017 Roero Arneis is a rich and pulpy white wine with bright fruit definition. The bouquet delivers tropical fruit, papaya and apricot. The mouthfeel is rich with thick fruit flavors. This vintage shows superior structure. But an expert winemaking hand is clearly at play, because that sunny ripeness falls short of tasting jammy or too heavy. Bruna Giacosa tells me that because of reduced yields, it proved challenging to source enough fruit to make this wine. Drink this fruit-forward white wine within the next few years.

Outer quote mark The 2017 Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis is a good example of what this venerable house achieves with this lovely white grape. I have long thought that the Arneis was by far Giacosa’s most underrated wine. The warm 2017 vintage has given us a slightly less vibrant and penetrating Arneis from Giacosa than usual, but it’s very flavorful and deep. The apple and pear flavors are a perfect start to the meal. The 2017 is another in a long line of fine Arneis wines from the house that bears the name of one of the three individuals who did most to bring back the variety from oblivion (along with Alfredo Currado of Vietti and Giovanni Negro of Negro).

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lemon, tangerine, white flower and mineral aromas and flavors power this sleek, focused white, backed by a vibrant structure. Builds to a long finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2018)
