On the north side of the Tanaro river, Nebbiolo vines produce a widely acclaimed and prestigious wine called ‘Roero’. The Nebbiolo vines thrive on the sandy, south-facing hillsides which line the Tanaro.
Roero is a fragrant, elegant and generous wine with an intensely inviting ruby red colour. This Roero wine is dry, warm, and ample with a subtle peach and raspberry scent. The restrained tannins and velvety flavour of this wine make it the perfect accompaniment to a wide range of dishes, including rich, buttery fish, like sablefish.
Nebbiolo - Believed to have been cultivated in the Langhe district before the 14th century. Nebbiolo is notoriously difficult to grow and make into fine wine outside of Piemonte region.The wines, Barolo & Barbaresco tend to be the most in need of aging, other wines made in the modernist style are becoming more approachable at a young age.
