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.

Barbera

Barbera

The Barbera variety is a red grape variety found in several Italian wine-growing regions outside their native Piedmont, such as Emilia-Romagna, Puglia, Campania and even the island regions of Sicily and Sardinia. At the beginning of the 21st century, this is the third most commonly planted red wine grape after Sangiovese and Montepulciano. It is used for the production of both blends and pure wines, the latter becoming more and more prevalent. The cultivation of Barbera has been documented since the 17th century and traditionalists still produce wine by the then widespread method - with longer maceration and less oak. However, fans of modern techniques are increasingly turning to more rounded, more affordable styles, softened by aging in oak. Due to its naturally high levels of acids, Barbera can be grown in warmer climates without affecting the quality of the wines. This acidity complements the cherry aromas characteristic of typical Barbera wines and contributes to the stereotype that Italian red wines are ripe, bright and fresh, not so voluptuous and earthy. When young, most Barbera wines have the typical character of ripe red cherries, relatively soft tannins and a pleasant roundness. When aged in a barrel and then in a bottle for several years, these cherry notes develop towards nuances of a sour cherry and even plum. Barbera reaches its zenith in Piedmont, where the vine performs best on the well-drained, limestone-rich slopes with a warm southern exposure.
