Monchiero CarboneAll products from this vendor
"The Monchiero Carbone winery is located in Canale, in the heart of the Roero hills where its foundations were laid in 1987 when the large farmhouse in via S.Stefano Roero was purchased. Current owners Francesco and Lucrezia demonstrate a dynamic, energetic approach to winemaking, often hailed as a breath of fresh air amid more traditional producers of the region. All wines are estate bottled in an effort to raise awareness of the quality of small volume production and diversity capable of stirring a drinker’s emotions. Their philosophy is to respect the origins of the land, cherishing its well-being to provide their vines with the correct natural nourishment, ultimately allowing them to yield just the right amount of well-concentrated fruit. While Arneis is the hallmark of the Monchiero Carbone winery, high quality Barbera and Nebbiolo are produced here as well."
It produces floral-driven white wines, whose elegant bouquet belie the wines' relatively full bodies and rich taste – typically of pear and tropical fruits rounded out with a creamy hint of hazelnut.
The Langhe is a mountainous region of Piedmont located east of the Tanaro River and south of the capital of Alba. Lange has a long history of winemaking, and many of the wines produced here use traditional, well-established grape varieties such as Arneis and Vermentino for white wines, and Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Freisa for reds. Since its official launch in November 1994, Langhe DOC has built a significant reputation for innovative viticulture. The Langhe wine region, known as the 'quality triangle', is made up of a unique combination of climate, soil and local varieties that create a rich wine range. Also, one cannot fail to note the passion and obsession of local producers who fully devote their whole life to serving their land.
Translated from Italian Piemonte means ''the foot of the mountain" which is evident by the location of the region - it rests near the Alps which protect the region from cold winds. Nebbiolo is the king of grapes here - this exceptional variety is ideal for the production of wines with a high potential for aging like, for example, the world-famous fruity and balanced Barolo and Barbaresco.
