This month we’re focusing on Monticello d’Alba & Probes d’Alba in Roero, to regions akin to the Alba area of Piedmont as they both border the province.
Holding just 2% of the Roero vineyards = 18.48ha of Arneis and 5.38ha of Nebbiolo – Monticello d’Alba is similar to that of Alba boasting gentle hills and soils made up of sedimentary rock mixed with sand, marl, and gypsum. These soils are best suited for a strong style of Roero Arneis.
The most well-known vineyards are Casà and La Valle.

Piobesi d’Alba also echoes that of Alba boasting gentle slopes and soils with a marl-gypsum content. There are 44.52ha of Arneis and just 3.53 of Nebbiolo.
Here the Roero Arneis is mineral, but with a weightier body than other areas of Roero and strong aromas.
The most important vineyard for the area is Bric Paradiso, which boasts gray marl soils.
