Gavi di Gavi Montserito, Tenuta Carretta, Piedmont, Italy

£17.00

In 1985, the Miroglio family purchased the Tenuta Carretta estate in the district of Roero and set about restoring it to its former glory. Records of land cultivation on this estate date back to the 12th century, while written documentation confirms that vines were present on the hills surrounding the area in 1594.

The Miroglio family were inspired by the staggering natural beauty of the region and were keen to return the land to its original use, producing wines of exceptional quality. The family have sought to respect local winemaking traditions, but also have maintained a focus on progressive techniques and new market requirements. Their methods have undoubtedly led to a successful outcome, as Tenuta Carretta is now considered one of the most prestigious wineries in the Roero and Langhe regions.
