Anyone interested in Piedmontese white from a family dating back to the 14th century?

We know… we had you at Piedmontese white.

But the 14th century doesn’t hurt either.

Domenico Almondo’s goal was simple: to create an elegant and distinct Arneis rich in character and full of depth and dimension. A contemporary white wine that grabbed people from the moment its aromas leapt out of the glass, and after a few sips, had them enamored with the purity and precision of this marvelous grape.

The Almondo family has been churning out superlative juice for generations, and their Arneis from three scattered parcels throughout the infamous region of Piedmont. The 2020 Vigne Sparse, named for the dry and sandy soils in which it grows, is bright and fruity with a backbone of minerality that leads into an energetic and expressive finish.

Fermented in stainless steel and matured on the less for five months before bottling, the wine is a luminous beacon of Italian vinous excellence ripe in golden hues with tints of green flashes when the light hits it just right. Aromas of Bartlett pears, white peach, lemongrass, lime zest, sea salt, exotic spice, wet stones, and green apple. A racy core of keen acidity pierces the palate and is accentuated by a long, clean finish that goes on for even longer than an Italian lunch (and trust us when we say those go on forever).

A magnificent Piedmont white from a family who knows this region better than most, this is a perfect summertime elixir that makes living easy and drinking even easier.

Just dive in… the water is fine.
