  • Tenuta Carretta Barbaresco Cascina Bordino 2010


    Highly floral notes with tomato leaf, a fair bit of heat and earthy notes of clay and tar. The fruit comes in more on the palate, with tart cranberry, red currant and cherry notes, loamy earth and dusty clay, with potent acidity and spice coming through the back of the palate and onto the finish. Tannins add a bit of texture here, especially on ... Read More

  • Tenuta Carretta Cannubi Barolo 2009


    Tart red fruit on the nose has some wooden character to it, tomato leaf and ripe red cherry. This picks up a fair bit of acidity in the mouth, with more tart red cherry and raspberry, licorice and vanilla bean flowing through the midpalate and a light herbal note and a streak of licorice. Finishes pretty long with toasted caramel notes and a str... Read More

  • Tenuta Carretta Bric Paradiso Roero 2009


    Slightly candied, simple but pleasant red fruit notes of ripe cherry on the nose. Bright red fruit leans to the cranberry side, with loads of tannins, fresh acidity and tar with a medicinal note on the long finish.88 pts Read More

  • Tenuta Carretta Barbaresco Cascina Bordino 2010


    A dusty and earthy nose, this wine leads with tomato leaf, cocoa powder, herb, and not much fruit. In the mouth there's strong red fruit, mostly lively cherry and a hint of cranberry, but there's also a fair bit of herb and a hint of a violet floral component, licorice, ripe black cherry and a short goji and cranberry finish.

    Wine review by ConvoiVietnam

  • Tenuta Carretta Barbaresco 1989


    Perhaps the surprise of the evening with a simply knockout array of aromatics. Classic notes of prosciutto fat, old Middle Eastern spice tones, smoke, leather, mint and minerals are all enmeshed in a precise core of crystallized red raspberry fruit. In the mouth this was fine but lacked the punch promised by the nose though there was plenty of r... Read More

  • Carretta Roero Arneis Cayega 2007


    My first Arneis. A little too much heat for me, but behind the heat is some nice "cloudiness" with apricot hints and even some mint. I would not buy again at this price point. Read More
