Minor grape grown in Piedmont region of Italy. Used to make an aromatic white wine – (e.g “Roero Arneis”, “Langhe Arneis”) – lacking sufficient acidity, when fully ripened, to age well. Some regard it as reminiscent of wines made from the french Viognier grape grown in the northern Rhone region. Others find Pinot Gris of the U.S. west coast, (see below), similarities in the fruity flavor of the wine when made in the style of “Tokay d ‘Alsace”.
