The new appointment of #UMANOITECOM animates Vino Vero Lisboa: the guest-innkeeper of the event will be the Italian Lidia Carbonetti from the wine estate Rocco di Carpeneto.
Located in the hilly Alto Monferrato in the Piedmont region, the estate was born from Lidia and Paolo’s passion and determination: bored by her job in Milan, Lidia decided to radically change her life. Therefore, wine has become her second life: she got back to study enology and viticulture at university and, by the time that the first vintage of their estate was ready, she had completed her degree.
At Rocco di Carpeneto, only native vines are cultivated, following the principles of biodynamics, respecting the environment and its natural cycles. The estate’s name itself is rooted in local history: “Rocch” was the ancient name of the Carpeneto d’Acqui region since 1458 and before. Even the wines’ names bear the traces of local culture: they are all named after dialectal words, as the RAPP, “bunch” in dialect, a 24/30-month aged barbera, spontaneously fermented in stainless steel vats, the RATARAURA, literally “bat”, a Barbera del Monferrato superiore DOCG, mostly processed inside clay pots, or the ANDEIRA, which refers “rhythm” or a “brisk walk”.
These and more wines will be available for tasting during the next appointment of #UMANOITECOM.
