My wine pick this week was discovered at a fabulous Italian restaurant in the heart of Yorkville. In the mood for something off the beaten track… not that I am a member of the ABC Club….”anything but Chardonnay”. I love Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blancs, two staples, but when we saw this wine on the list we thought,this is a great producer located in Piedmont. The vineyards have a long history located in the commune of La Mora, in fact the earliest beginnings date back to 1340!
Cordero di Montezemolo, Arneis 2013
Under the same name until 1941 when the countess passed and willed the property to her grandson who is the father of the current owner Giovanni Codero di Montezolo, who together with his children continue to personally manage the vineyards and take care of the fruit. And a superb they do!
To the wine! The Cordero di Montezemolo, Arneis 2013 from the region of Langhe in Piedemonte has an intense bouquet of peach and flowers, so inviting with a crisp, dry long finish. Absolutely delicious and a different variety to enjoy for a change, well made, complex. Try it, you will love it! I know I did!
