Roero Wine

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. 

Roero was once an ancient sea, called the Golfo Padano, and, as a result, there is a large quantitity of sand in the soils as well as marine fossils. 
 
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. This is due to the soils which are heavier in sand and lighter in clay than the other well-known regions.
 
Nebbiolo DOCG must age a minimum 20 months, and another 12 months additionally to be labeled Roero Riserva DOCG. The wines must consist of at least 95 Nebbiolo.

Reviews of Roero Wines

  • Ceretto Blange Langhe Arneis 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Honeydew melon, cantaloupe and lemon aromas. In the mouth its oily but fresh, showing lemon, melon and herbal notes of lemongrass and chamomile tea. Theres a bit of dissolved CO2 here, lending a fresh zestiness to the palate, which coupled with the acidity makes this a great food wine, especially with creamy foods that would need a counterbalance.

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is simply amazing! This has to be my all-time favorite sweet red wine. If you enjoy a lot of sweetness, but not too much to where it's rich, then you'll enjoy this. I'm not a big fan of red wines at all and I loved this to the max! Read More

  • Gio Dominico Negro 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nothing like a little Italian Barbera while the wife is out of town. Initial nose was earth and plummy. Lots of fat jam in the nose. First tastes were a bit overly acidic with notes of plum and currents. I put my glass down and walked the dogs. 20 minutes later. Transformation. The nose is a bit more rigid but the earthyness has slowly va... Read More

  • Vietti Arneis Roero 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Lightest wine I have had in a while. Did not have the slight effervescence on the tongue like other Arneis wines I have had, although I am not certain that the bottle had not been opened the night before. The palate had notes of grapefruit and a medium toasty finish. Wish it were more complex. Read More
