Tenuta Carretta Presents Its «Signature Labels»


Tenuta Carretta Presents Its «Signature Labels»

20 August 2023

The winery from Piobesi d’Alba launches three new labels featuring artworks by Rosetta Avalle: a tribute to the territory's vocation that converges with human experience.

Tenuta Carretta, a winery located in Piobesi d’Alba, in the Roero region, has a deep commitment to dynamism ingrained in its DNA, thanks to a long history that dates back to 1467, making it one of Italy's longest-standing wineries.  

Over the past year and a half, the wine range has undergone significant revival. Specifically, the «Superiore» designation has been introduced for three “single vineyard” wine labels that were already part of Tenuta Carretta's range: Bric Quercia Barbera d’Alba, Tavoleto Nebbiolo d’Alba and Il Palazzo Dolcetto d’Alba. Furthermore, to commemorate the Tenuta’s 555 years of history, a new line of premium wines has been officially introduced under the name «Signature Labels».  

These wines are both a challenge and a tribute to the Nebbiolo and Arneis grape varieties, which played a central role in the enological revival of Roero. But also included is an intriguing variety like Riesling Renano, which began its diffusion in Alta Langa back in the 1970s and has since become a respected symbol of the territory. 

The «Signature Labels» are three wines that highlight the exceptional union of soil, climate, grape variety and human expertise. Defined as «signature labels» for their distinct and innovative technical nature, but also, because they bear the work of an artist like Rosetta Avalle, whose creative genius has manifested itself in many fields. A painter and sculptor, she hails from the same territory from which these wines originate: Avalle has skillfully conveyed a unique and original look on the feminine essence, in a continuous pursuit of its representation. The line is an ode to a dear friend of Tenuta Carretta (Rosetta Avalle shared a profound friendship with Ivana Brignolo Miroglio) three years after her passing, with three wines endowed with great quality and personality.
