Tenuta Garetto has been acquired by the Gagliardo Family in 2017. It is a very well-known and recognized spot for Barbera. It is located in Agliano Terme, in the heart of the new Nizza Docg appellation.
The estate can count on old vines planted between 1935 and 1950, as well as more recent vineyards. Vinification takes place in the cellar adjacent to vineyards.
The wines we have in stock are vintages produced by the previous owner, Alessandro Garetto.https://tenutagaretto.it/en/home-en/
