From the bottle:
ReCit means "little King" in the local dialect of Roero/ This 100% Arneis wine has aromas of apples and pears rounded with hints of almonds. This wine has plenty of body and structure with a persistent dry finish. Enjoy with appetizers and fish or as an aperitif.
The renowned Piedmont region in Italy is of course best known for its red wines made from the Nebbiolo grape. Today; however, we are happy to introduce you to a white variety from Piedmont that was almost extinct just 50 years ago.
The 2014 Recit Roero Arneis from Monchiero Carbone begins with an attractive if a bit subdued aroma of apple, pear, peach and honeysuckle. Tasting the wine reveals a soft and smooth mouthfeel with a pleasant bit of creaminess and a subtle complexity that makes it a pleasure to drink. It features similar flavors to the nose but they combine majestically in the mouth. It ends with a hint of a nutty note on the long finish. If you're a fan of Italian wines and especially those from Piedmont, this is definitely one worth seeking out!
