ALBERTO CARRETTI

PODERE PRADAROLO

What is today the Podere Pradarolo farm, located in the Parma Hills of Emilia Romagna, was purchased in 1972 by now vigneron Alberto Carretti, who comes from a prominent cheesemaking family, and was converted to viticulture and winemaking in 1989, with Alberto’s vision of a rigorously natural venture guiding each and every step. The estate, located in the ancient winemaking area of Emilia Romagna near Parma (world-famous for its prosciutto, to which the farm was originally dedicated) and long since certified organic, is characterised by great thermal excursions between day and night and by breezes from the nearby Liguria sea imbuing the grapes with exceptional complex aromas. Alberto’s wines see ancestral knowledge and the passage of time as vital elements, having both whites and reds undergo long natural macerations and elevage, as well as no fining nor filtration.
