This is a beautiful unoaked white wine. A relatively unusual grape that comes from a region best known for some of Italy's most famous reds. Grown in the Roero area of Piedmont, this fine, crisp, dry 100% Arneis suggests peaches laced with hints of honey, and minerality.
If you like dry French Savoie or Northern Italian white wines, then this wine is for you!
Located in the heart of Piedmont near the city of Alba, the Valdinera estate has been farmed by the Careglio family for four generations.

Currently, “Beppe” Careglio grows Barbera, Favorita, Nebbiolo and, of course, Arneis.
