Roero Arneis: Crush On This Episode 41

Roero is a hidden gem located in Piemonte, Italy. It is not Barolo. It is not Barbaresco. It is not even Nebbiolo Langhe. Roero, a hilly region located north of Alba in the northeast corner of the province of Cuneo, has its own distinctiveness and elegance.

Being in Piemonte, the region of Roero produces Barbera d’Alba, Birbèt, Bonarda, Favorita, Moscato d’Asti and Nebbiolo d’Alba. But Roero has two DOCG wines, a white wine made from the grape Arneis and a red wine made from the grape Nebbiolo. 

Arneis is an ancient grape with the first written evidence found in the beginning of 1500. But, after phylloxera in the 1960s, production of Arneis had almost ceased to exist. Thankfully some producers began to replant it in the 1970s and today Arneis is considered the main expression of the sole of the land.
