When deciding on the design of our wine labels, we wanted to stay close to Roero tradition, using symbols found on tarot cards combined with the wheel, an important local symbol, that is similar to the Conti Roero family coat of arms. The symbol of our Roero DOC wine label (an angel and a dragon bound to a wheel) also welcomes our visitors at the front gate of the winery.
