Roero Arneis

Controlled and Guaranted Designation of Origin

The Roero is a small area located to the left of Tanaro river, equidistant from both Alba and Asti. Here some lands among which definetely the Lamiana (Teo Costa property) are particularly rich in sand an limestone marls. On these hills often extremely steep and irregular, the Arneis grape was born and gives the maximum of itself. It is an ancient autochtonous variety, for long century forgotten that is back in the spotlight in the last 20 years with excellent results. Its chacacteristics are the elegance, the delicacy and the extreme harmony.
