Tasting Notes

Arneis is arguably the most important white grape of Piedmont, often referred to as “White Barolo” because of its complexity. Great Arneis has minerality due to the sandy soil it grows in that is also rich in fossils.

The Ceretto family is one of the largest vineyard owners in Piedmont with more than 400 acres of estate-owned vineyards, located primarily in the Langhe and Roero region. For three generations, the Ceretto family has transformed the fruit of the Langhe’s vineyards into wines that speak of the region's identity. The "Blangè" vineyard, located on the hillsides of Vezza d'Alba, was purchased in 1985 with the sole purpose of planting it with the Arneis grape.  The name of the wine is derived from the French word "boulanger," or baker, as legend has it that this is where Napoleon's bakers made their camp when his armies ventured into the area. Blangè combines sustainable and organic practices in the vineyard with a modern take. This wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks.

TASTING NOTES

Flavors are subtle, yet balanced. Fruit of pear and apple mix with beeswax, stone and almonds. The wine is mineral, clean and fresh with lemon, citrus and a touch of nuttiness.

FOOD PAIRING
