Chiesa Carlo – Roero Arneis 2014

  • Basic info: Chiesa Carlo Roero Arneis Quin Wine, Italy, 2014.
  • Type: White
  • Price estimate: $20 (Chamber Street Wines)
  • Look: Light yellow. Translucent with medium legs.
  • Smell: Lemon and orange. (Bob got anise and licorice smell, but I honestly didn’t get any of those)
  • Taste: Lemon, chive. Tangy, but not grapefruit-like. Crisp and a descent body. (Bob found mineral and some scallion for his tasting note.)
  • Conclusions: We both really liked this wine, but not as much as the vermentino. It had a really nice texture and a good, clean taste, but for me it was good, but not great. I liked it, and I would have it again, but I am not going out of my way to find more.
  • Other notes: This was the second in the mixed case that we ordered. So far we are really happy with the wines, and I can’t wait to try some of the reds.
  • From the bottle: No notes on the bottle, but from Chamber Street, “wine is bright straw yellow and has persistent flavors of green apples, stone fruit and white flowers with just a touch of honey.” 13.5% alcohol by volume.
