Roero Arneis

In 1478 appears for the first time a written record of this variety that takes its name from Renesio’s hill overlooking the town of Canale d’Alba, first property of Roero’s Counts, afterwards sold with other properties to the Counts Malabaila of Canale, and by them alienated in the Eighties.
