A Tulip Shaped glass is the best choice for a dry white wine.
It guides the wine to the center of your mouth, avoiding the sides, where acidity is less pleasant.
A smaller bowl also helps to serve smaller quantities, and keep the wine cold.
Remember to hold the glass by the stem!
The name Arneis means "Little Rascal" because it is difficult to grow.
