Alberto Oggero Roero Bianco 2022

MCF Rare Wine

Oggero's Roero Arneis is easily the best and most compelling Arneis I've ever tasted.  From the sandy/limestone soils of the Santo Stefano vineyard, the juice macerates for three days on just 50% of the skins.  It then undergoes temperature controlled fermentation, half in stainless and half in concrete, and then spends 12 months in Slavonian oak.  The resulting wine is deeply colored and shows this outrageous tension between the fresh, high-toned and mineral elements, and the richer, more textured, honeyed/waxy character from the light maceration.  It's deep, it's texturally thrilling, it's outrageously drinkable and it's screaming for food.
