Floral in scent with a nice full citrus aspect, this wine is a great alternative to those who only know Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon Blanc.  I myself probably only tasted no more than ten Roero Arneis wines prior to this year -- okay, it could have easily been thirty or fifty considering all of the Italian wine events that I have went to as well as my three trips to the country itself -- but only started to build an appreciation for them this year.  It was because Charles Sant'Elia invited me to a tasting of wines from Roero and I literally was flattered by what was being served.

Now Arneis starts off very floral and the gives you a nice muted citrus that finishes off not too dry.  The mouth on this is just a little silky and heavy, but not too much.  I chose to have it with some Jerk chicken and it went exceptionally well.
