The Roero is situated on the left of the river Tanaro, an area characterized by gentle slopes interspersed with large cracks in the ground called “Roche”. On these lands the Roero is produced, whose vine is Nebbiolo. The Roero DOCG, thanks to a careful processing in the vineyard and in the cellar, can compete with the most famous Barolo and Barbaresco, not surprisingly it is a wine that has reached the prestigious goal of DOCG.

After the harvest, the fermentation and maceration process on the skins begins with the aim of extracting the indispensable compounds for both aging and longevity.
