2007 Cantine dei Marchesi di Incisa della Rochetta Roero Arneis - Italy, Piedmont (2/11/2009)
WIML94-95?

Tasted February 11, 2009 at an offline.

Light yellow color in the glass. clear hue throughout. Rich nose of freshly cut grass, limes, sea foam, wet stones and a fresh Spring bouquet of flowers. Lush flavors of lime, apricot and freshly sliced oranges. Bright acidity, somewhere between light and medium body. Much fuller on the palate than your typical Arneis. Drink over the year to two years. Without a doubt the best Arneis I've tasted to date so the score is reflective of it's performance against it's peers. Well done. (94 pts.)

This wine was once again firing on all cylinders last night. Light yellow color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Nose of peach, wet grass, sea foam and a dash of grapefruit. Later notes of florals and talc. Flavors of lime, peach, minerals and a dash of grapefruit. Bright acidity, medium to full body for an Arneis. Drink over the short term. (94 pts.)
wine+art had posted a note that he opened one subsequent to the offline and found it not up to par. I opened one last night and tried it with a curry dish. It held up well and was exactly as you described above. I think this is a great wine for $22 and it pairs well with a lot of flavors.
