Art. # 3889

Tenuta Carretta is the only winery that produces wine from the Garassino estate in the Barbaresco appellation, which actually makes this wine Single Vineyards.

The vineyard is a mere 3.70 hectares planted with Nebbiolo vines, and the rows occupy both sides of the hill, enjoying excellent sunshine almost all day. The soils are of ancient origin, composed of alternating marl and sand layers, with a small percentage of clay and limestone.

Barbaresco Garassino offers wines that pride themselves on their florality, grace and elegance; the wine relies on complexity rather than 'backbone', on 'refined and balanced classicism' rather than power.

More about this wine

Tenuta Carretta

Tenuta Carretta

Tenuta Carretta stretches over 70 hectares around the village of Piobesi d’Alba, in the heart of the Roero region, Piedmont, northwestern Italy. The mansion has over 500 years of history in the production of wine. Since 1985 it has been owned by the Miroglio family, textile industrialists from Alba and is part of the Terre Miroglio, which also includes the Malgrà winery in Mombaruzzo and Eduardo Miroglio in Elenovo. The area was a seabed in prehistory, which determines mainly sandy and well-permeable soils. The continental climate with well-defined seasons and a decrease in night temperatures in late summer and autumn allow the grapes to concentrate aromas in the skin and contribute to the balance of ripening. Every year Tenuta Carretta makes about 480,000 bottles of the most prestigious red and white wines of Piedmont, Langhe and Roero, the most famous of which are Cayega Roero Arneis DOCG only from the Arneis variety and the prestigious and rare Barolo Cannubi.

Piedmont

Пиемонт се радва на ненадминато място сред най-добрите винарски региони в света. Разположен в северозападна Италия, той е домът на повече вина DOCG от всеки друг италиански регион, сред които са толкова известни и уважавани имена като Barolo, Barbaresco и Barbera d'Asti. Макар и известен със своите строги, танинови и флорални червени вина, произведени от Nebbiolo, най-голямата история за успех на Пиемонт през последното десетилетие е сладкото, бяло, пенливо вино Moscato d'Asti. Пиемонт се намира, както подсказва името му, в подножието на Западните Алпи, които обграждат северната и западната му страна и образуват неговата естествено граница с Прованс. На югоизток се намират най-северните Апенински планини. Тези ниски крайбрежни хълмове разделят Пиемонт от неговия дълъг, тънък съсед Лигурия и Средиземно море отвъд. Пиемонт: „в подножието на планините“ Алпите и Апенините имат голямо значение тук, по различни начини. Те са до голяма степен отговорни за благоприятния климат в региона и в продължение на много векове осигуряват определено ниво на защита от нашествие. Въвеждането и редовното актуализиране на чужди технологии за винопроизводство е една от основните причини Пиемонт да остане толкова напреднал в лозарството в сравнение с други италиански региони. Близостта на региона до Франция също играе роля в това.

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo is the grape variety behind the top-quality red wines of Piedmont in Italy, the most notable of which are Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo wines are distinguished by their strong tannins, high acidity and distinctive scent – often described as "tar and roses". The name comes from nebbia (fog) which is a common view of the vineyards in autumn. Powerful and intense, Barolo is the most famous and prestigious Nebbiolo-based wine, but it is increasingly rivaled by the slightly more elegant and perfumed wines from Barbaresco to the northeast, which rose to prominence in the late 20th Century.
