Ceretto Arneis Blange 2009
Ceretto farms 173 acres of arneis in the towns of Vezza d’Alba and Castellinaldo – claiming to make one in every five bottles of this local Piedmont specialty. Given the significant level of production, it’s remarkable that the wine is consistently among the best. Their farming and careful winemaking maintain the freshness of the grapes, presenting exotic fruit flavors – loquat and kumquat – as well as brisk apple and pear. Acidity brings a seashell minerality to the wine, accompanying fresh almond flavors in the finish. For crudo, especially scallops or fluke.
