Viticulture: Non-certified organic
For three generations the Ghisolfi family has been running this winery just outside of the southern most Barolo village Monforte d’Alba.
The vineyards, purchased in 1985, are in what is now known as ‘Cru Bussia’, a highly desirable sub-zone of Barolo.
Ghisolfi offers top end Piedmont wines that have retained their ‘affordability’, a refreshing change in a region where demand is constantly driving prices upwards.
Ghisolfi are recognised for their finesse and depth, with a reputation for flying under the radar. Perhaps they don’t always get the recognition they deserve outside of Italy.
And as the last of the classic 2010 vintage from Barolo disappears, we offer the Ghisolfi 2010 Barolo Riserva, a powerful yet elegant wine that has the structure to cellar for a further 20 years plus.
