Almonds, white flowers, peaches and pears on the nose. The palate is full of white fruit richness, minerals, and a hint of spices on the finish. Lovely acidity. This wine can improve over 2-3 days once opened.
This gold label Arneis is a recent addition to the Almondo lineup. “Le Rive” made from a single plot of old vines within Bricco delle Ciliegie (hill of cherries).
It replaces “Bricco delle Ciliegie” as the flagship wine of the estate, and the ambition from the family is to make “Le Rive del Bricco delle Ciliegie” the top 5 white wines in the entire Italy.
