2010 Ceretto Blange Langhe Arneis

Very fresh aromas waft from the glass, and limestone is the first thing to hit the palate. It’s even a bit spritzy on the tongue at first. Flavor layers range from well-vinified fruit to underlying sherry. With citrus in the finish, it would be tempting to dismiss this wine as a Sauvignon Blanc-wannabe, but this white has much more muscle, finishing very strongly. Drink with anything from pasta to sausage. Recommended. BSE
