A traditional grape variety from Piedmont, whose recorded history dates back to the 15th century. After having faded into utter obscurity, Arneis experienced a real renaissance toward the end of the 20th century. Today, Arneis is considered a classic with Vitello Tonnato or Risotti in its native Italy and enjoys considerable popularity beyond the borders of the country as well. Its flavour profile is characterised by notes of green apples or pears, as well as almonds and herbs. Very rarely cultivated in South America.
