The basic joyful Arneis for a relaxing afternoon. Aged exclusively in stainless steel tank, Vigne Sparse is a textbook “drink me young” Roero Arneis, with aromas of white flowers, chamomile, white peach, and apricot and flavours of citrus, ripe pear, apricot, and sweet almond. Lovely acidity.
The story of Giovanni Almondo starts 500-million years ago when Monta d’Alba is an ocean. The fossils which can still be found in the vineyards nowadays contribute to the essence of the wine.
Now run by the brothers-team Stefano and Federico, Almondo grows Arneis, Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes that reflects the terroir of Monta. The Arneis is regarded as one of the best in the regions, and is listed in top restaurants.
