Arneis is a Piedmontese white grape variety native to the Roero area and also widespread in the Langhe, whose name in local dialect signifies 'extrovert' and 'rebel'. Present for centuries in the mixed crops of farmers, its rediscovery and development dates back to the 1970s, when it was vinified in purity, giving rise to elegant white wines with a strong personality and fine aromaticity. One of the first and most famous examples, Ceretto's Blangè, became the symbol of an entire generation at the turn of the 1980s and 1990s, and is still today one of Italy's most popular wines in the world. In recent years, this great success has encouraged Roero producers to invest in quality and rediscover local traditions, which has led to the creation of a special denomination. Today, this type is considered the standard bearer for white wines in the Piedmont region, in the same way as Nebbiolo is for red wines.
