Roero DOCG Releases Map Designating “Grand Cru” Vineyards Throughout Territory

After 8 years, the Roero Consorzio has released the region’s MGA

After 8 years in the making, the Roero Consorzio released the region’s Menzione Geografica Aggiuntiva (MGA) or, simply put, the territory’s vineyard or “subzone” classification map that classifies top vineyard sites in Roero, the third Italian wine region to do so.

The map designates those areas best suited for the production of Nebbiolo and Arneis based on soil, climate, provenance, and other criteria with the purpose of aiding trade and consumers in understanding the quality wines of the region.

“Similar to the cru classification in Barolo, Bordeaux, Germany, and elsewhere, we have developed a system of vineyard classification based on extensive tastings and research of the terroir and history throughout the region,” said President of the Roero Consorzio Francesco Monchiero. “It is another step forward for expressing uniqueness or Roero region and that we are among the top wines of both Piedmont and the world.”

Currently, a handful of Roero producers release a vineyard-designated Roero and/or Roero Arneis, but the number is expected to rise in the near future.

“We are very excited to have finally completed this project, the third region in Italy to successfully do so. After much deliberation, the map showcases the best potential growing sites for Nebbiolo and Arneis,” continued Monchiero. “We hope that the increased production of vineyard-specific wines will further perpetuate the Roero terroir.”

The Roero Consorzio released the official map to the public at the second annual Roero Days held in Milan on March 26-27, 2017 via a press conference. Copies of the map are available to press by request to

#ItalianFWT: Nebbiolo Beyond the B’s This Weekend (Feb. 4th)!

Monticello copy

We are so excited to this weekend’s upcoming Twitter chat entitled “Nebbiolo: Beyond the B’s” featuring Nebbiolo in “off the beaten path” regions such as yours truly: ROERO.

We will be logged on (10amCST) chatting with participants and sharing some of our favorite characteristics, but we thought it would be great to also write-up a short primer on the Nebbiolo of Roero DOCG to get in the spirit.

Roero because a DOCG in 2005 so it much younger than its famous “B” counterparts, but the wines are already on par with the highest of the quality. There are just 195 hectares of Nebbiolo registered under the Roero DOCG denomination – small, but mighty! That said, the first records of Nebbiolo in Roero date all the way back to the 14th century!

Roero has a higher percentage of sand than other areas of Piedmont, but the best expressions of Nebbiolo are grown on those which are predominately clay. Still, the high sand content adds elegance to the wines which are suitable for aging, but drinkable after just a couple years. Similarly, it is almost always grown on the hillsides with the best exposure to the sun. Clones in Roero include: lampia, michet and rosé.

Roero has two DOCG designations for Nebbiolo:

  1. Roero DOCG: 95% Minimum Nebbiolo, 6 months aged in wood, 20 months aging total starting from the 1st of November of the year in which the grapes were harvested. Can be sold after the 1st of July in the second year. 12.5% Minimum alcohol with a minimum acidity of 4.5g/l.
  2. Roero Riserva DOCG: 95% Minimum Nebbiolo, 6 months aged in wood, 32 total starting from the 1st of November of the year in which the grapes were harvested. Can be sold from the 1st of July in the third year. 12.5% Minimum alcohol with a minimum acidity of 4.5g/l.

All cultivated Nebbiolo must come from the province of Cuneo which is comprised of the territories: Canale, Corneliano d’Alba, Piobesi d’Alba, Vezza d’Alba and part of the following municipalities: Baldissero d’Alba, Castagnito, Castellinaldo, Govone, Guarene, Magliano Alfieri, Montà, Montaldo Roero, Monteu Roero, Monticello d’Alba, Pocapaglia, Priocca, S. Vittoria d’Alba, S. Stefano Roero, Sommariva Perno.

The Roero and Roero Riserva DOCG wines, upon consumption, must comply with the following characteristics:  Ruby red or garnet color, fruity nose with hint of wood, and full-bodied, dry, and tannic – but integrated – in the mouth.

Food pairings are often meaty – steak tartare, steak, etc. but can also be root vegetables and pasta dishes.

There are many wonderful producers in the Roero region that are just waiting to be discovered! We look forward to sharing more with participants of the chat on Saturday!


Congratulations to the Tre Bicchieri Recipients, 2017

c0b9551977076f4d39877c4ee1020b1d_genericThis year, six Roero wines received the honor of the Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri.

They include:

Each of these wines was selected by way of a series blind tasting by unbiased panels. The first is made up of at least three individuals that are only informed of the varietal, region, and vintage. Top scoring wines continue onward to a second round of tasting, and top scoring wines from those tastings at selected by the editors of Vini d’Italia and other selected tasters. Only wines receiving over 90 points, an average of all the scores from teh tasters, are awarded the Tre Bicchieri.
We are incredibly proud of the six wines awarded this title from Roero and it continues to showcase the high quality of wine coming from the region.
So raise a glass, or three, with us and enjoy some Nebbiolo!
