Roero DOCG: Vines

The Roero DOCG is a single varietal wine, and therefore can be made exclusively by Nebbiolo grapes

95% of Nebbiolo grapes and the addition of 5% of other red, non-aromatic varieties suitable for cultivation in Piedmont.

Piedmont’s noblest red grape needs to grow in a carefully chosen environment and growing conditions. It sprouts early and the fruit generally ripens in mid October. The bunch is medium to large, a winged pyramid shape with medium to small grapes having a consistent blue-black skin with violet nuances. This is the vine that produces Barolo and Barbaresco, Nebbiolo d’Alba... you can read more about Nebbiolo here.
