Drinking and Pairing Arneis with FoodArneis means "rascal" in local Italian dialect because of how difficult it is to grow. It is a straw-colored, pear- and almond-scented white wine from the Roero zone of Piedmont, Italy. This grape variety was nearly extinct until two producers revived its production in the 1980s.
The wines are soft, floral, and tend to be lower in acidity, making them lovely wines to accompany antipasti or simply prepared fish, as well as asparagus, another famous crop from Roero's sandy soils.
