Fossils



Embedded in Pliocene sands, fossils show the presence of an ancient sea. It's easy to find them in the vineyards, especially where the soil is worked.

In the Roero area, 720 species of mollusk, many fossilized skeletons of fish and small Pliocene cetaceans (5,500,000 -3,000,000 years ago) have been retrieved and classified.
