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 »

  • 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

  • Cascina Chicco Roero Arneis Anterisio 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Pale straw color. Very fruity nose--apples and melons. Light and refreshing on the palate. Can still get the apple thing, although there is also some tart lemony acidity also happening. Good summer wine. $21.99 at the Wine Club in Santa Ana. Read More
