ROERO

VINEYARDS, FIELDS AND GARDENS

The luxuriant greenhills of the Roero spread out along the left bank of the Tanaro river, between the city of Alba and the Turin plain, Bra and Cisterna d’Asti.

Of Pliocene origin (between 2 and 5 million years ago), the Roero was once a seabed. The irregular, jagged hills, no more than 400 metres above sea level, are covered with vineyards and vegetable gardens.


They feature an impressive geological phenomenon: the Rocche, steep outcrops of yellow sandstone which rise unexpectedly among the green woodlands. It’s no coincidence that the soil is particularly rich and sandy, with high levels of calcium due to the high presence of fossils which still appear in the terrain. The wonderful thing about the mostly light and loose soils of the Roero, is that is produces wines of utter freshness, not excessively structured, but exquisitely elegant and extraordinarily aromatic.
