Piemonte, more known for red wines, has a darling white grape. Though not so darling to farm, the name means “little rascal” in Piemontese dialect, so called because it can be difficult to grow. However it sure is easy to drink. It is crisp, yet exotically floral and seductive. Whether on the porch, lunch or dinner table, this wine will take center stage. And this delightful rendition comes from Fratelli Brovia. They own and organically farm 19.2 hectares of prime vineyard sites in Barolo and Barbaresco. In addition to their Arneis in Roero, they also make two different Barbera d'Alba and Dolcetto d'Alba bottlings. The estate was founded in 1863 by Giacinto Brovia and his son, Antonio ran it until 1932 when he died suddenly. The business went dormant until 1953 when Antonio's son, Giacinto resurrected the vineyards and winery and now his two daughters, Elena and Cristina run the show.
