Wines by Monchiero Carbone
Across two vineyards with two different terroirs, the estate of Monchiero Carbone “seeks to highlight the quality of small-scale productions”. The current family who run the winery are continuing the work of their forefathers, who first cultivated the land in the 1900s.
In the heart of the Roero hills, established winemaker and Roero wine consortium president Francesco Monchiero, with his wife Lucrezia, manage an award-winning portfolio of wines. Their destiny seemed inevitable, given the legacy of viniculture that stretches back on both sides of the family. The Carbones planted white Arneis vines in the Tanon area in the early 1900s and the Monchieros first purchased the Monbirone vineyards in 1918 to grow Barbera.
The wine labels feature a lion door-knocker with an Italian phrase that translates to “every door has its knocker", highlighting the idea that “beyond the door of the winery is to be found a unique history ... that cannot be reproduced in any other wine cellar”. It is also testament to the estate’s belief that every wine, produced from a particular hill, “will result in a wine with a multitude of different facets”.
