Arneis (are-nayz) is native to Piedmont, Northern Italy and in local dialect means 'little rascal'. This is a direct reference to the difficult cultivation and fickle nature of the variety. The wine is defined by a delicate white floral note, soft nashi pear flavours, a hint of ginger spice and citrus purity on the palate. It has fruit clarity with underlying textural complexity.

Given its soft acidity and texture, Arneis pairs well with lighter food flavours. Try seafood pasta, salads with creamy sauces and shellfish.
