  4. Langhe DOC Arneis Blangè

The "Blangè" vineyard, located on the hillsides of Vezza d'Alba, was purchased in 1985 with the sole purpose of planting it with the Arneis grape.  The name of the wine is derived from the French word "boulanger," or baker, as legend has it that this is where Napoleon's bakers made their camp when his armies ventured into the area.

Tasting Notes

Medium straw in color, this wine offers aromas of pears, apple blossoms, beeswax, and almonds.  On the palate, the Blangè is soft with round, nutty flavors overlaying subtle minerality.

Food Pairing

The classic Piemontese pairing for this wine is Vitello Tonnato - cold slices of veal topped with a creamy tuna sauce.
