Beautiful packaging and product combined, this Roero Arneis features a hand-drawn label by grappa producer and artist Romano Levi, designed exclusively for the family in 2000. This caught our eye even before we had tried the stunning wines. The Arneis is aged on its lees for three months to add complexity to this crisp yet fruity white, with floral notes leading to a vital, citrusy palate.

Buy this if...you want to know what Arneis is all about.

I'd not ordered this wine before and what a pleasant surprise it was. A slight fizz to add a celebratory air. Light, dry but with complex flavours. I usually try to stick to one glass a night but this was just too tempting! Lynn

The Producer

This family-owned winemaking business was established shortly after the Second World War when Carlo Ponte began growing and producing Barbera in the village of San Damiano d’Asti. The wine-making tradition was passed down to his son Giuseppe in 1968, with a new cellar in Frazione Gorzano and the creation of Fratelli Ponte Vini. Giuseppe rapidly increased the vineyard holding and range of wines before passing over the reins to his sons Massimo, Ivan and Renato who are involved in every step of the winemaking process from vineyard to bottle.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"I’m already a fan of this producer’s Barbera, but really liked this delicate white from Piedmont speciality grape, Arneis, with another lovely whimsical drawing by one of the Ponte children as its label. Typically crisp, fresh and bone-dry, I really liked the mineral salts character to the acidity here that frames and defines the taut apple and citrus fruit that is tangy and just cheekily vivacious enough to give this juicy easy-drinking appeal for a fairly serious white"

The Region

The 20 hectares of Ponte vineyards are situated around the villages of San Damiano d' Asti, Canale d’Alba and Calosso d’ Asti, south-west of the town of Asti in Piedmont. The clue is in the name here as Piedmont means the 'foot of the mountains' - the Alps to be precise - and the region enjoys a warm climate with low rainfall thanks to the proximity of the Alps to the north and the Apennines to the south. These rolling hills are home to more DOCG wines (the highest quality level of Italian wines), than anywhere else in Italy, not to mention the birthplace of the Slow Food movement.

Perfect summer evening tipple

I'd not ordered this wine before and what a pleasant surprise it was. A slight fizz to add a celebratory air. Light, dry but with complex flavours. I usually try to stick to one glass a night but this was just too tempting! Perfect for a warm summer's evening

Spaghetti Carbonara

A classic Italian recipe needs a classic Italian white - this is a surprisingly rich dish so try a very crisp, mineral white to add a hint of freshness - northern Italian whites are a perfect pairing, think Roero Arneis.

Rosemary Roast Turkey

Not just a Christmas classic. The mix of light and dark meats and herbaceous rosemary make this dish the perfect match for structured whites. Fratelli Ponte's Roero Arneis is just what you're looking for.

Charcuterie Board

Cured meats match perfectly with light reds or richer whites with the fresh, juicy fruit in the wine contrasting with the smoked/salty flavours in the meats. This northern Italian whites from Piedmont, they're a beautful match.
