Arneis is a white wine grape variety from the Piedmont region in Italy. The grape almost went extinct in the 1960s, but has since undergone a resurgence in popularity. Arneis is now grown on over 605 hectares in Piedmont, as well as in small quantities in California, Australia, and New Zealand. The wine is known for its floral scents and full-bodied flavors of pear and apricot, with a hint of hazelnut. Arneis wine is particularly associated with the Roero district, where it is known as "Barolo Bianco" due to its close proximity to the Barolo region. The variety's resurgence is largely thanks to the efforts of winemaker Alfredo Currado, a member of the well-regarded Vietti wine family. The grape's decline in the 20th century is attributed to a lack of interest in white wines in Piedmont and the grape's reputation as a difficult variety to grow.
