The Roero

Roero: Wild land.

Between the hydro has left of the Tanaro River and the carmagnolese plain I find the territory of Roero, a favorite land for the vine since my colidalo.

Until about 500,000 years ago, during the Pliocene, the entire Po Valley plain was submerged by the Gulf of Padano: an ancient quarry the sign with shallow seabed, which left substantial deposits of, clay and mineral salts, a large deposit of marine fossils that can still be in these lands. Between 500,000 and 250,000 years ago the exercise of the African plate on the strong Euracrea of the gulf floor, and a new land emerged: the Padana plain, which today takes its way to the maritime Alps, to the Adriatic Sea to the east.

In the front of the Maritime Alps, to the west, the territory of Langhe and Roero, the crackling from the Tanaro River, which flows from west to east, imitating the north of the Langhe and South roero.

The part of the Roero is "recent" history "recent trapdoor" to that of the Padana plain: it seems that this steep hills born born a phenomenon erosion by the Tanaro River, which diverting its course about 60,000 years ago drew the beautiful hilly landscape of this area.

The erosion caused by the so-called "Spirit of the Tanaro" phenomenon removed quantities of soil, giving rise to the "Rocche del Roero", deep rifts in the hills visible in part of the Roerino territory, and resurfaced the most ancient soil layers , formed during the geological eras, in aging an extremelyheterogeneous diattine of sols.

The landscape of roero is the landscape of the Roero aroused by the acfield from the prologio to the various and wild prolusion: these are the reasons for the constant erosion by the weather, and preserve the biodiversity and the anointic of here's beautiful territory.

In 2013, the maredei of the area decided to found the consortium of protection of Roero, an association of wine producers in d.O.C.G. Roero. The consortium soon drew up the map of the designation, highlighting the MGA (condirective mentions) that mitra and meters the areas used for viticulture.
