Just outside of Langhe is Roero, where the white Arneis grape is the featured variety. For many years Arneis has produced a lot of uninspired wines and very few made without extra trickery in the cellar. This example from GianLuca Colombo and Federico Scarzello's new Altre Vie project is a rare example of someone trying successfully to elevate Arneis to something compelling and different, here by using clay anfora, a little sulfur, and nothing else. The fruit is sourced from a friend's sandy, sunny vineyard, and farmed using Biodynamic practices. It has the soft, pear aromas more typical of Arneis, but there is an elegant, fine texture to the wine, with a nice edge that cuts through without losing its pleasant demeanor. GianLuca was named Italy's best young winemaker in 2014, and yet his goal is to avoid displaying the mark of his winemaking so that  “only the vineyard, the vintage, and the grape should speak."
