“One of the classic northern Italian wines that really put Pinot Grigio on the map for Americans, this wine still delivers on its popular promise. The wine is straw yellow, and it becomes fruitier and sweeter as it warms in the glass, reminiscent of roses and apricots. On the palate there’s a glyceryl mouthfeel yet plenty of crisp acidity, at first seeming a bit sweet but then also pairs well with food. Drink with pasta, chicken or other light northern-Italian foods.”
In “Roero Arneis is Italy’s Overlooked Great White Wine,” writer W. Blake Gray states a case for why Arneis should be a mainstay on any wine list. Included as a recommendation is the MONCHIERO CARBONE Cecu d’la Biunda Roero Arneis 2016.
In “Five White wines for the transition to Fall,” writer Vicki Denig lists some great wines to help usher in the season of comfy, warm sweaters and cozy comfort food. Included in the line-up is the PIEVALTA Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore. She notes the wine has “classic almond-like flavors [that are] both clean and fresh, retaining slight notes of citrus that match the lingering heat of summer.”

“A blend of dark fruit with a mellow finish that will pair well with the more savory items on your table like a meaty stuffing. (Bonus point: this is an excellent value at $12-14 a bottle.)”
