If you want a great wine from the Piedmont region of Italy, you absolutely can not go wrong with one from De Forville. They make consistent quality wines of Barbera, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Moscato, Chardonnay, and this Arneis.
This wine is excellent, a bright light straw color, with a nose of light fruit, pear, apricot, floral, grassy and herbaceous. In the mouth the wine carries nice weight, light fruit and honey, with great balance between the fruit and earth. Really smooth, great finish that lingers in your mouth for just a bit.
This wine is ready to drink, no reason to let it sit around. Perfect spring and summer, the wine pairing very well with fruit, cheese, and fish dishes.
