This wine comes from 2.2 hectares of vineyards in the Ghemme DOCG located in the villages of Ghemme and Romagnano Sesia. The soils are a soft alluvial mix left by the retreat of the Mount Rosa glacier after the last Ice Age and erosion of the Alps by the Sesia river. They are mostly sand, granite and clay based with a high content of iron, granite and quartz. The blend is approximately 85% Nebbiolo and 15% Vespolina. It ferments with natural yeast in stainless steel and macerates for 18 to 20 days before aging for 48 months in large Slavonian oak casks (25-30 hectoliter) and in bottle for a least two years before being released.
