Roero Riserva DOCG was created in 2005.

The law: Roero Riserva DOCG: 100% Nebbiolo, aged min 32 months with 6 months in barrel, min 12.5%abv., 100% from Roero

Notes: Notes of spice, sour cherries, forest fruit. Elegant and refined, bold and fragrant, heavier oak influence at times; optimum for aging.

History: Nebbiolo has been grown in Roero for hundreds of years, as it has in the rest of Piedmont. Here, the soils have a higher concentration in sand than their counterparts, Barolo and Barbaresco which allows them to be more elegant and refined instead of large power house and, as a result are ready for consumption sooner. However, the best examples, which is often times the Riservas, can have a very long life.
