Cornarea Roero DOCG

100% Nebbiolo grapes, Roero Cornarea is obtained through a careful selection in the vineyard. It ages for 18 months in large barrels and it continues the ageing for at least 6 months in the bottles. The Nebbiolo grapes from which the Roero Cornarea is produced are cultivated in the historic Cornarea cru, belonging to the estate and located in Canale d’Alba. This town is the wine producing capital of Roero. The Roero wine is a wine that combines a rich structure with moderate and elegant tannins. It got the DOCG denomination (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) in 2005, thus becoming the third Nebbiolo DOCG in the Langa-Roero area, together with Barolo and Barbaresco. This wine works very well with red meats and matches wonderfully roasted duck, piedmontese bollito and well-aged cheeses.
