Ciao Clare & Michael — sounds like you two had a great time. What was the name of the restaurant?
We sampled the Arneis and the Barbara D’Asti with the Crostini. I thought the Arneis was fabulous with the mushroom and Robiola Crostini. I am a big fan of unoaked whites and Arneis delivers on all counts.
They make a very nice Roero Arneis (though the label is a bit creepy;-), its refreshing and I agree that unoaked whites can be nice. Their Moscato is always a big hit. I haven’t tried the Lazzarito, it sounds like it needs more time.
As an FYI, Vietti has a nice English website for those who want to learn more. You’ll find them at http://www.vietti.com/en/
