Arneis, Arneis

As Victoria Moore recently wrote in her Saturday Telegraph wine column,  people are happy to fork out for perfume but not for a decent bottle of wine.

wine - Malvira Roero Arneis 2008 from Piedmont, ItalyFor at least £3 less than a 30ml spray of perfume Anais Anais (depending on where you buy it) you can buy a great bottle of Italian white wine made from a grape called Arneis. I reckon the bottle of  2008 Malvira Roero Arneis I bought from Waitrose smelt a lot nicer as well: ripe pears, raw almonds, with hints of white blossom and grass.

Lower in acid than many other Italian whites (but this one still had a decent amount), this managed to capture the freshness and roundness of a white nectarine studded with those almonds.

A great aperitif.
