"The 2010 Roero Arneis Bricco delle Ciliegie is also terrific. It shows a bit more textural depth and richness than the Vigne Sparse. Sweet floral notes weave throughout a core of expressive peaches and pears in this creamy, textured white. The Bricco delle Ciliegie is often one of my favorite wines from Roero. The 2010 is simply gorgeous. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

Once again, Almondo has turned out a fabulous set of wines. Readers who want to explore Roero should start here. " (WA)

"Pale, bright yellow. Ripe, vibrant aromas and flavors of lemon and lime zest, apple, crushed stone, licorice, mint and wild herbs. Penetrating and dense for arneis, with strong minerality contributing to the wine?s tactile impression. Finishes chewy and long, with a repeating note of wild herbs. An unusually serious and persistent arneis, with no loss of immediate refreshment value." (IWC)
