Arneis, Elvio Tintero 2019

A wine that sings of springtime. Very lovely floral nose of orange blossom and honeysuckle with notes of juicy white pear flesh, blanched almonds and citrus. The palate has a nice, faintly saline mineral quality which will make this a winner with fish dishes (especially salmon), creamy sauces and light pastas (see the classic Sicilian pasta below). These are young arneis vines, so the wine's on the light side, but sometimes that's exactly what you want: delicate, with absolutely charming aromatics, bright varietal character and palate-cleansing freshness. 12.5%
