Alteno Della FontanaROERO ARNEIS RISERVA DOCG

With this wine, the Arneis grape, also known as White Nebbiolo in the 1800s, stays true to its second name and proves itself able to engender top quality wines suitable for prolonged ageing. The name of the vineyard, now included in the wider Geographical Mention, Bric Paradiso, however, is older and was first mentioned in 1594 in a deed of estate partition between two members of the Damiano family, owners of Tenuta Carretta until 1811.
