Arneis is a native white variety of Piedmont with refreshing notes of pears and lemons. A variety that was disappearing from the Piedmontese landscape, in the 1970s Vietti one was of only two wineries still bottling Arneis. Alfredo Vietti spend time learning this variety in the 1960s and became the recognized master of it. Interestingly it is sometimes called Nebbiolo Blanco because it was so underrated it was interplanted with the Nebbiolo vines to attrach the birds and save the more valued red grapes from being eaten. Try Vietti's wine and see how mistaken they were.
