1989 saw the official recognition of Arneis di Roero as a DOC wine. The grapes for Alasia Roero Arneis are sourced from vineyards on the Langhe hills in the Piemonte region. The vineyards have a south-westerly aspect and are situated at altitudes between 200 and 300m above sea level. The vines have an average age of 20 years. Planting density is 4000 to 4500 vines per hectare. The vines are grown in limestone clay soil and trained in the low Guyot trellis system.

The result is a rich, dry white with ripe pear fruit, almond and linseed. The palate is plump, soft and expressive, packed with stone fruit and apricots, with a delicious texture and nutty, herbal finish with hints of fennel and clove.
