Found between the historic vineyards of Langhe and the picturesque vistas of Asti, the tiny district of Roero has long been regarded as one of the best areas in Piemonte for wine production.  Covered by a shallow sea during the prehistoric age, the sandy, fossil-rich soils of the area provide ideal growing conditions for wines that are richly complex and abound with personality.

 

Considered by many as Roero’s finest producer of premium quality wines, the winery of Giovanni Almondo has been in operation since 1980.  Steadfastly dedicated to the presentation of terroir and focused in key cru sites long owned by the family, the majority of the estate’s production is dedicated to a pair of Arneis that are both fresh and elegant.  The smaller vini rossi program is similarly focused in a cru setting, with plots of Barbera and Nebbiolo that are consistently creating flawless, modern wines that are firmly structured but pleasing and drinkable. 

 

A force in Piemontese wines with which to be reckoned and prized by wine critics throughout Italy and the world over, these are superior wines that are not to be missed!
