Valfaccenda, Roero Arneis 2018Regular price $27.00 Save $-27.00
Luca Valfaccenda works the steep and sandy slopes of his home -it’s unlikely he would describe his family’s vineyards any other way- alone, and harvests by hand. Known best, perhaps, for his utter devotion to creating wines that first reflect the land, the terroir, before the grape itself, Luca’s wines showcase his land’s effect on the fruit, rather than forcing the wine to fit a specific flavor and style. This Arneis is still a classic Arneis, but where the pear and almond flavors steal them show, other notes such as a dried honey and apricot, and a steely acidity, display out this wine’s true nature. Delicious, and perfect for the hot summer weather to come.
