Tenuta Garetto was born from the desire of the Gagliardo family to expand its production in the area of Nizza, given the important wine-growing vocation of this land.

Hence, in July 2017, a transfer of ownership took place, which saw the famous producers from La Morra, from Poderi Gianni Gagliardo, take over this historic estate and its vineyards.

Stefano and Alberto Gagliardo undertook the tradition consolidated by the previous management, however making important changes both in the vineyard and in the cellar: alongside vineyards dating back to the 1930s, new plants were born, always linked to a low-impact agriculture, that is now about to become organic.

The estate is located in Agliano Terme, the most important area for the production of Nizza DOCG, a brand new denomination recognized as the maximum expression of Barbera d’Asti grapes.

The Wines

Agliano Terme, always known as the "Barbera town", is characterized by sandy marls which are a constituent element of wines with character and suitable for aging.

The property consists of a single plot of 10 hectares that develops on the hill behind the cellar, thus helping to optimize the harvest and therefore maximize the quality of the wines produced.

The winery mainly processes Barbera grapes, which correspond to about 80% of the production, some of which date back to the 1930s and 1950s; all vineyards are in an ideal South / South-west exposure.

The wines produced are Nizza DOCG, Barbera d’Asti DOCG, Barbera d’Asti Superiore DOCG and Grignolino d’Asti DOC, each of which characterized by elegance and strong character as required by the Gagliardo style.
