Roero is a wine region within the Cuneo province of Piedmont, Italy. It surrounds the district of Alba, on the west side of the Tanaro River. The region is named for a family who were active in the banking and trading business for some time in the Medieval period. 
 
The Nebbiolo DOCG is located within Roero, where the grape takes on a rich, softer and more fruit-driven character than in nearby Barolo and Barbaresco communes. Nebbiolo DOCG must age a minimum 20 months, and another 12 months additionally to be labeled Riserva. Roero Nebbiolo Superiore must age at least 8 months in barrel. Roero Rosso must consist of 95-98% Nebbiolo.
 
The other small percentage is often the local white regional celebrity grape Arneis, to soften the sharp tannins. But Arneis of course has its own varietal DOCG, its name meaning “little rascal” in Piedmontese. This is a sleeper of a white grape, gaining popularity for its aromatics and versatility late in the 20th century. For Read more »
