The Roero DOCG 2012 and Roero Riserva DOCG 2011 have been released on the market and had a strong showing during the annual Nebbiolo Prima garnering much attention from journalists and trade.
“We are very proud with the 2011 and 2012 vintage wines,” said President of the Consorzio Tutela Roero, Francesco Monchiero of the Monchiero Carbone winery, “Here, we have two very good representations of the region and we are delighted with the final products across the board.”
According to Monchiero, The Roero DOCG 2012 is described as, “One of the most fruit-rich vintages of the last 15 years, rich in blackberry/raspberry aromas, with notes of undergrowth on the nose and palate, accompanied by sweet and elegant tannins.”
He describes the Roero Riserva 2011 as, “A very interesting and complete vintage with an excellent balance between tannins/richness. The 2011 wines are those that are easy to drink now, but thanks to the presence of tannins, this is a vintage that can also be aged for a long period.”
“We were happy to be a part of the Nebbiolo Prima event for another year” continued Monchiero, “there, we were able to show the trade and consumers what Roero is capable of alongside our the other great regions of Piedmont.”
The Roero DOCG 2012 and Roero Riserva DOCG 2011 have been officially released in Italy and will soon be available in the US.
