The Roero district is a small area on the left bank of the Tanaro river, half-way between Alba and Asti in southern Piemonte, with a mostly hilly, sandy or limestone ground. Thanks to the vintage of 1989 the Roero Arneis’ traditional habitat has achieved the status of D.O.C. The hills on which it is planted are extremely steep and most vineyard work must be done by hand, exactly like the Costas carefully still do in their vineyard LAMIANA, whose soil is predominantly made up of alcaline sands and whose yields are very low. Production is thus inevitably small by any standards, endowing this Arneis-wine with superb concentration. Arneis is an ancient local variety which neglected for centuries. It has gained popularity over the last twenty years, bringing the Roero wineproducers excellent marketing awards. The typical features of the wine are elegance, delicacy and perfect harmony
