Discover Piedmont’s Real Roero in Chicago June 12th!

Nestled in the northwest corner of Piedmont, Roero is a rising star and hidden gem. Join us for a taste of the region’s elegant Nebbiolo’s and refreshing Roero Arneis. The area’s sandy soils create a mineral character truly unique to the area, different from its famous counterparts. 

During the hour-long seminar presented by Carlo Deltetto of Deltetto Winery and Aldo Zaninotto of Osteria Langhe we will have a taste of Roero Arneis Spumante, Roero Arneis, Roero, and Roero Riserva (including older vintages.) A true value for any wine list, be one of the first to discover this delicious region.

Along the Wine Trail: Pocapaglia & Priocca

Roero Map  copy 2

This month we’re focusing on Pocapaglia & Priocca! Two areas of Roero that are quite opposite, but produce delicious styles of the Roero Arneis.

Pocapaglia

Pocapaglia is located on the inner portion of the Rocce, though its hills are not significantly high compared to some others in the region.

Located in the southwestern portion, Pocapaglia’s soils are dominated by sand with silica and are generally loose & arid with evidence of marine fossils so it comes as no surprise the entire area under vine of the DOCG denomination (11.02ha) is of Roero Arneis. The area produces a fresh and elegant style of Roero Arneis .

Opposite the Pocapaglia, in the northeastern portion of Roero, Priocca is known for steal hills and Pliocene soils imposed with gypsum, limestone, rock, sulphur and other components. There are 36.95ha of the Arneis and 6.98ha of Nebbiolo in the DOCG here and it is known for producing powerful, bold, and full-bodied wines with high alcohol content.

The most famous and important vineyard location is Val del Prete. Other locations worth noting are Madonna delle Grazie and Montaforche.
