Wednesday, July 24th, Tenuta Carretta Experience invites you to a new “narrated tasting”: the protagonist is the Roero, an extraordinary land of vineyards and wines today in great form.
Welcome to Roero, the left bank of the Tanaro river! It is a hilly area, its profile is sharp and angular, and among the woods and vineyards, ochre-yellow outcrops suddenly appear. These are the Rocche, a geological phenomenon shaped by erosion that is typical of the area. From Cisterna d’Asti to Pocapaglia, these sandstone gullies “cut” through the hills, creating a spectacular landscape of stone and gorge, lush with vegetation.
An area that has always been suited to viticulture, Roero has been profoundly re-evaluated over the last 30 years thanks to its particular soils: a mix of calcareous sands suitable for both white wines (in which the Roero Arneis DOCG excels) and red ones (Roero DOCG , Nebbiolo and Barbera d’Alba DOC just to name a few) which, in spite of more agile structures, they gain in finesse, aromaticity and freshness.
To celebrate Roero, a land that saw the birth of Tenuta Carretta in 1467, we have chosen to showcase the flagship wines of this area. Each wine will be accompanied by its story: history, land, position and characteristics that make it unique because it is an expression of the local terroir.
- Roero Arneis DOCG Cayega 2018
- Roero Arneis DOCG Canorei 2015
- Barbera d’Alba Superiore Bric Quercia 2015
- Roero Riserva DOCG Bric Paradiso 2014
Accompanying these outstanding wines will be the Michelin-starred food of Chef Flavio Costa of 21.9, the restaurant hosted by Tenuta Carretta.
