Tim’s Tasting Notes


2012 Cristina Ascheri, Arneis, Langhe, Piedmont

£13.95, 13.5%, Great Western Wines

Arneis is Piedmont's best white grape in my opinion, especially when it offers the sort of value and fruit concentration on show here from Ascheri in Bra. Refeshing and zesty, with a slight spritz, but with plenty of weight and concentration behind, with pear and angelica spice and a deliciously bitter twist.
