This wine is named after Alfiero Carpini, the first vineyard worker at Valdipiatta, who had already been working at the estate for 15 years when Giulio Caporali bought the property in the late 1980s. It was Alfiero who taught the history of each vineyard to the Caporali family and planted a small vineyard in Bossona in 1973. After Alfiero passed away, Giulio Caporali honored his memory by producing a wine with the grapes grown in the vineyard that Alfiero had planted 25 years before.
