Consorzio Tutela Roero: A Good Showing at Grandi Langhe

March marked the celebration of the 2nd annual Grandi Langhe hosted by the Consorzio Turistico Langhe Monferrato Roero in Piedmont featuring the prestigious wines of the region including areas of Barolo, Barbaresco, and Roero.

The three-day, six-tasting event aimed to show attendees the individuality of each area of Piedmont while focusing on the significant grape(s) of each area, as well.

Thursday, March 19th was Roero’s day and 38 producers gathered at the newly renovated Castello Guarene, a picturesque landmark with even more amazing views – certainly a star of the Grandi Langhe!

For many, this was the first opportunity to showcase the highly anticipated 2014 vintage – a high majority of the wines had been bottled just days before! As expected, though, the 2014 vintage showed clean, crisp fruit with good quality across the board.

The Roero (rosso) ranged from years 2010-2012 with a few outliers of older vintages, many with Riserva status. Nebbiolo from Roero is made in an elegant style featuring a softer body with a floral component with notes of spice, cherries and red fruits. These examples were not exception to this profile.

In the words of the Roero Consorzio President, Francesco Monchiero, (previously printed in Civilta del here) “This event is the clearest proof of the fact that , despite the protection bodies [consorzios] are now legally separated , the mind and willingness to cooperate in the promotion of the whole territory has remained the same.” Truly a great event all around and we look forward to the third edition of the fair!
