“We admit it honestly: when people ask us about the better white wines for storage, we don’t immediately think of those made from grape Arneis from the Roero, Piemonte. The red wines there are from the grape Nebbiolo, for sure. They are world famous for it, the barolos and barbarescos. Even several barberas can last a long time in the cellar.

But white… We once learned that the wines made from the Arneis grape mainly existed because the white grapes existed, and the natives of Piedmont sometimes kept a glass of white as a diversion in addition to all that local red.

But storage wine… Well, yes. At least, here at Carretta. From the Arneis from Canorei, their oldest vineyard. The beautifully ripe grapes are then raised in oak.

The result: that fresh, spicy Arneis with that characteristic hint of mint takes on a creamy softness through the wood and with age and a charming touch of vanilla. Very charming. Lively and with the pinkies. Wine to age, far from old.”
