ITALY: HIDDEN GHEMME – AND GATTINARA

Tucked away in the foothills of the Alps, the 'two Gs' of Piemonte live in the shadow of its more famous Bs, Barolo and Barbaresco. Yet this can be nebbiolo to relish. After a long search and a lot of tasting, Sebastian Payne MW has found something special, in the fine family estate of Torraccia del Piantavigna, whose archives have been tapped for a rare opportunity to sample ten-year-old wines.

Ghemme, Torraccia del Piantavigna 2007

Proprietor Alessandro Francoli thinks this may be the greatest vintage in the history of Torraccia, though 2004 runs it a very close second. Softer and fuller in body, with slightly lower acidity, it’s fresh and vibrant More >

Gattinara, Torraccia del Piantavigna 2004

The wines of Gattinara are considered more ‘masculine’ than those of nearby Ghemme, a reflection of the volcanic origin, rocky and porous soil here which perfectly suits the nebbiolo grape. 2004 was an excellent More >
