I have tasted many vintages of Vietti’s Arneis and it has always come through well. However, Simon tasted the 2020 recently and reported that it was comfortably the best vintage of this wine he had tasted, with more zip and definition than past vintages. Regrettably, I have not yet tasted this vintage (though bottles are on their way to the office to rectify this), so I have included Simon’s tasting note below.
2020 Roero Arneis, Vietti
£95 per 6 bottle case in bond
The 2020 Arneis from Vietti captures that delicious juicy nectarine and peach fruit, with a touch of peach kernel. On the palate, there is a subtle nutty, almond-like touch. Tangy and juicy to the last, what stands out to me is the purity of the fruit; fresh and clean and unhampered by oak. Whilst it is not a complicated wine, it is very well made and incredibly appealing. There is something that reminds me of a white Rhône blend; similarities with Marsanne and Roussanne, even the fruit characters of Viognier, just without the viscosity. A fantastic everyday drinking wine that is sure to bring great enjoyment. Drink now until 2024 (SL)
