PREFACE – PART 1 ~ WHITE WINES

Wine samples come to to me as a single bottle. Some arrive in a package of two or three. On other occasions, a case (or there about) arrives. This is one of those instances. I’ll be breaking this two into two days of Whites and then red wines. They’re my wines for this week, and they come from all over the globe. I’m enjoying (and learning) so much about wines from around the world. This is a lovely experience, and so worth sharing. So, enjoy the ride.

HEART

Luca Bosio Langhe Arneis D.O.C.G. 2016 -100 percent Arneis: The Luca Bosio Langhe is made from Arneis (are-NAYS) grapes grown on the Bosio Estate in the Roero region (which is in the Southeastern part of Piedmont, close to Turin, in the foothills of the Alps). It starts with a clean, floral nose, with captivating hints of pineapple, apricot and peach that follow through to the palate and refreshing finish.

SCIENCE

WINEMAKER: the Arneis grapes for this wine come from vineyards located in the Langhe sub-region, at 200 to 400 feet above sea level. The average age of the wines is 20 years and they are grown on southeast and southwest facings in sandy soil, at a density of about 5,000 plants per hectare. After harvesting, the grapes spend 24 hours at low temperatures in contact with the skin to increase the complexity of aromas. They are then pressed and the must is fermented in temperature controlled steel tanks. The wine spends five months in contact with its own years after fermentation. There is a final three months ageing in bottle before shipping. his wine is made from Arneis grapes grown on the Bosio Estate in the Roero region (which is in the Southeastern part of Piedmont, close to Turin, in the foothills of the Alps).

SOUL

The Arneis grape is seeing a bit of a revival, which I really enjoy. I’ve always been partial to this variety from its first sip.  My first Arneis experience happened, while working at Kendall-Jackson Winery. It left memories of aromas and flavors that continue to easily linger. (And, a taste of it again helps.)

With this 2016 Luca Bosio Langhe Arneis, I was also reminded of its wonderfulness. It’s delicate and enticing, (like a Monet) delivering everything you’d want, via aromas and flavors… Add a canvas? Sensational.

Every Yin has a Yang in our world, through my eyes… and vice versa.

  • Piedmont’s Yang is red wine.
    • Masculine
    • Powerful
  • Piedmont’s Yin is ~ yeah, you guessed it ~ white wine.
    • Feminine
    • Persuasive
It starts with a clean, floral nose, and follows into beguiling hints of stone fruit with some palms waving int he breezes – yes, a bit of the tropics. All that in a bottle of wine. This never ceases to amaze me.
Highly Recommended

    We made our first trip to Piedmont last month and already have plan to head back in the Fall and will have to keep an eye out for this. Do you know if the winery offers visits?

  2. Jo Diaz says:

    Let me ask, Eric.

    Hi, Eric: From my source to the winery

    “I’ve not heard specifically of the winery enabling visits, but that doesn’t mean they don’t. It is still “Summer vacation” in most of Italy, meaning that essentially, everyone at the winery is away and currently unreachable. The best I can do at this time is to give you their contact information from their own website (see below). I can’t “officially” give him any advice, but perhaps if your reader were to contact them directly after approximately September 1st, they might be able to get an answer one way or another.
