Ceretto Blange Langhe Arneis 2016
Medium straw in color, this wine offers aromas of pears, apple blossoms, beeswax, and almonds. On the palate, the Blange is soft with round, nutty flavors overlaying subtle minerality. The classic Piemontese pairing for this wine is vitello tonnato—cold slices of veal topped with creamy tuna sauce.
