Torraccia del Piantavigna Ghemme
There are only some 150 acres of prized vineyards in this limited area.
The special climatic conditions, particularly the large changes of temperature between day and night due to the cold winds coming down from Monte Rosa, develop the aromatic properties of the grape. The clay-based soil and westerly exposure of the hills of Ghemme create a unique wine known throughout the ages for its richness, fullness of flavor, and ability to mesmerize when at its best.
A deep ruby, an orange hue on the rim. Delicate with suggestions of violets and licorice. Tannins are soft, and it maintains its bite throughout the years.
Red meat, braised beef, game, and seasoned cheeses. Local risottos, with mushrooms
