Marco Porello

The winery is a small family-run business that over time, starting from the 1930s, shifted from fruit cultivation, a typical activity of the past in the Roero area, to vine cultivation.

Cesare's legacy was subsequently taken up by his sons Riccardo and Ettore, who, against the trend of the times, dedicated themselves entirely to vineyard work. Since 1994, it has been led by Marco, Riccardo's son. For three generations, they have maintained a very high attention to quality, which extends to all their wines (4 reds, 3 whites, 1 sweet wine).

Marco Porello

Today they cultivate 15 hectares of vineyards, planted at the beginning of the 20th century, managed with great care and respect for the territory. They produce Nebbiolo, Arneis, and Favorita in the municipality of Vezza d’Alba, on soils of marine origin, sandy in structure and rich in minerals, which give the grapes rich aromas. The Barbera and Roero Torretta vineyards are located in Canale d’Alba, facing southwest, on medium-density soils with a good percentage of clay, allowing for an ideal ripening of the grapes.

Piedmont

In Piedmont, the first traces of viticulture date back to pre-Roman times (precisely to the Bronze Age, around 1500 B.C.), and although today the peak of quality is found in the region's great red wines, Piedmont also produces excellent white wines and sparkling wines.

The role of Piedmont has been fundamental for the development of modern Italian winemaking. It is here that the first examples of zoning of wine-growing areas were recorded, introducing concepts such as terroir and cru to Italian wines. Thanks to zoning, if a wine is produced exclusively from grapes coming from a single vineyard or parcel, the geographical indication appears on the label, increasing its prestige.

In addition to the geographical delineations indicated on the map, Piedmont is divided into 8 zones that group the 16 DOCG and 42 regional DOCs. Among these, we remember in the north the famous Gattinara DOCG and Ghemme DOCG, near Turin the Erbaluce di Caluso DOCG, in Monferrato the Barbera del Monferrato Superiore DOCG, Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG, Dogliani DOCG, Ovada DOCG, Gavi DOCG, and Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato DOCG, ending with Roero DOCG to the left of the Tanaro river and, in the Langhe region, with the famous Barolo DOCG, Barbaresco DOCG, and Dogliani DOCG.

In Piedmont, the revolution in the world of wine began, bringing Italy back to the forefront of high-quality production. Here, with few exceptions, single-varietal wines are produced, which best express the characteristics of the terroir and magnificently exalt the Piedmontese territory.

Roero

The territory of Roero extends to the left of the Tanaro River, between the plain of Carmagnola and the low hills of Asti.

For centuries, in this area consisting of 19 municipalities, mainly two grape varieties have been cultivated: Nebbiolo and Arneis. Nebbiolo has adapted well to the steeper slopes of the hills, in the leaner and sandier soils, where a fragrant and aromatic wine is obtained, elegant and generous in sensations starting from a beautiful intense ruby red color. On these hills, since the fifteenth century, Arneis has also been produced, acquiring subtle and elegant aromas reminiscent of white flowers and suggestions of fresh fruit from apple to peach to hazelnut.

In June 2014, the territories of Roero, with its unmistakable hills, were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site (along with those of Langhe and Monferrato).

Between the plain of Carmagnola and the gentle hills of Asti, the territory of Roero offers a breathtaking panorama and a wide variety of soils.
