Years of expert research and patient waiting are preserved in every sip of this wine.

Each vintage of the best selection of an ancient and rare Montepulciano clone, grown in the oldest family vineyards, undergoes a long refinement completed in French oak barriques.

After meticulous experimentation, today we are able to obtain in La Carrata a varied and balanced complexity of fruity and spicy aromatic notes, accompanied by a full and velvety enveloping on the palate. A wine to share and combine with important dishes and occasions, or to jealously guard and savor alone, in a moment of meditation.
