Almondo’s 2018 Roero Arneis Bricco delle Ciliegie covers every inch of the palate with layers of green apples, pears, white flowers and spices. The Bricco delle Ciliegie succeeds in bringing together the vibrant minerality of Arneis with the creamy, voluptuous texture for which it is so well known. One of my old standbys, the Bricco delle Ciliegie is once again outstanding. Year after year, Almondo is one of the very finest producers in Roero, a part of Piedmont where consistency is hard to come by. This is a fabulous set of wines from top to bottom.
