Arneis is a piemontese grape variety originated from Roero. The color is straw yellow with greenish reflections, vinified and aged in steel, the wine is fresh and drinkable. Its floral and fruity bouquet makes it delicate and pleasant. The nose has subtle hints of white and yellow flowers and notes of fresh fruit such as peach and melon, while in the mouth, the distinct sapidity typical of the variety underlines its persistent minerality. Excellent as an aperitif, it also goes very well with fish starters, cereal and vegetable soups and seafood first courses. Also try it with tomini and fresh cheeses.
Barbera d’Alba ‘Ansem’
Barbera is a piemontese grape variety. The production area is Canale d’Alba. The vinification takes place in stainless steel and then a few months in the bottle. The name ‘Ansem’ comes from the Piemontese dialect and means ‘together’. This name was conceived and chosen to emphasise the close relationship and collaboration of the father Angelo and his son Stefano in running their family business. The colour is an intense ruby red with violet reflections. The nose is broad, elegant, with aromas ranging from cherry to blackberry. In the mouth it is savoury, persistent and medium-bodied. Excellent with pasta, rice and soups, red meats and medium mature cheeses. Also a perfect aperitif glass with sliced meats.
Langhe Nebbiolo ‘Funsu’
Production area, Canale d’Alba and Santo Stefano Roero. Nebbiolo is the king of piemontese varieties. This wine is dedicated to Alfonso, in Piemontese ‘Funsu’, Angelo’s father who was a virtuous farmer faithful to his land. The wine has a ruby red colour with garnet reflections typical of the grape variety. The nose is floral and fruity, rich with hints of violets and roses. The light tannins envelop the mouth in a delicate and elegant way. The balance and harmony of this Nebbiolo make it quite drinkable and invite one to have another glass. Ideal with typical piemontese antipasti such as raw meat, veal with tuna sauce and Russian salad. Excellent with aged cheeses and wild game.
Roero ‘Mompissano’ Riserva
Production area is Canale d’Alba. This Roero Riserva is produced with 100% Nebbiolo and undergoes a long ageing in wood. Mompissano, the vineyard from which this wine is obtained, is the Additional Geographical Mentions of the Roero territory. The wine has an intense garnet colour. The nose is wide, complex and dynamic. Notes of ripe fruit and spices such as pepper and cinnamon prevail over the primary aromas. The firm structure amalgamates acidity and alcoholic power and allows to the fragrance to gradually open up. The aftertaste is long, persistent and with soft, well-balanced tannins. Excellent with roasts, boiled meats and wild game. Also good with aged cheeses.

Barbera wine is the wine of Piedmont, rude and strong, symbol of the daily life of peasant drinking. At the base of its success there are in fact the characteristics of rusticity and generosity in the production. After a long period of unjust and sad anonymity, Barbera has experienced a wide revaluation, also by virtue of a reinterpretation of the winery during the vinification phase.Wine tasting Roero wineries
Nebbiolo d’Alba wine is the same grape variety used for the production of Roero. Some producers prefer to keep this denomination for their wines, sharing it with other producers of the Alba area.
In November 1994, two other denominations of controlled origin were recognized which also cover the territory of Roero: Langhe DOC and Piemonte DOC.
The following wines are included in the DOC Piemonte: Piemonte Barbera, Piemonte Bonarda, Piemonte Grignolino, Piemonte Brachetto, Piemonte Cortese, Piemonte Chardonnay, Piemonte Moscato, Piemonte Moscato passito, Piemonte Spumante.
Langhe DOC includes the following wines: Langhe Arneis, Langhe Nebbiolo, Langhe Dolcetto, Langhe Freisa, Langhe Chardonnay. Alongside these new DOC wines, smaller in the quantity of wine produced and certainly of good quality, are emerging the Langhe DOC red and the Langhe DOC white.
