Roero is a small DOCG qualified vineyard in the Piedmont hills northwest of Alba and along the scenic vineyards of Monferatto and Langhe. Together, the trio of vineyards form a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The name of the designation is anchored in local history; Roero is the name of a family of bankers who were very influential in the area during the Middle Ages.
The fragrant, pear-scented native variety Arneis thrives here. Reminiscent of soft fruit, the grape produces exuberantly aromatic white wines, making Roero one of Italy's rising wine stars. The wine matures reasonably and after a few years takes on a hazelnut character with a bit of texture. The appellation also produces smaller quantities of dry red wines from Nebbiolo. They produce the variety's archetypal tar and rose aromas, as well as pronounced tannins that can be unmanageable in their youth. That said, Nebbiolo takes on a richer yet softer fruit-driven profile here than the Barolo and Barbaresco styles.
At Grandcruwijnen, we think it is important that people can find their preferred flavor. That is why we came up with the idea of the sample box. This does not just consist of a number of wines, but of themed wines specially selected by our vinologists. With the sample boxes you can try different wines and find your own taste.

All of our sample boxes have a number of things in common, mainly that they are all (international) class wines and that they are extra competitively priced. A document with all wine descriptions and a table for making tasting notes is added to each test box. What could be more fun than selecting your favorite wine in this way together with friends and / or family.
