This “regional” version of Nebbiolo offers up a very pure expression of this noble varietal. Grown in the alpine foothills of Alto Piemonte, its name is derived from Latin for Ghemme as wine grapes have been grown here since before Roman times.
This wine is a very elegant version of Nebbiolo vinified for early drinking to show its enticing palate of floral red fruit, bright acidity backed up by minerals and plenty of earthy notes. Soft tannins are melded into the somewhat bold texture that shows nice grit and good length.
