Description

Details of wine

Barolo has ancient origins. There are documents that testify to the cultivation of the Nebbiolo in the area of the Visette already from the 12th century in conjunction with the invasions of the Saracens that from Liguria pushed into the Piedmont hinterland. From these influences comes the name of the ancient Monforte historic center, called "Saracca". The same word Visette comes from the dialectical expression "vis" (grape).

From the road from Castiglione Falletto rooms in Monforte, immersed in the vineyards of Bussia, one of the most suitable sub-zones of the Barolo area, is the company Attilio Ghisolfi. A ride from the 1988 Gianmarco that as of this date began to bottle wines that actually the company was already producing for three generations but which until then had always been sold in bulk. Covering an area of ??about 7 hectares of vineyards are cultivated what are the classic varieties Alba area (Nebbiolo, Barbera, Freisa) plus a variety of very unusual for this area: Pinot Noir. Aware that to make a great wine is not just a good winemaker but are fundamental land, the vineyard and the traditions that have been handed down, our family is paying attention to the vineyard and to his right and followed balance directly all the pruning work to harvest. With the aim of obtaining a production as much as possible eco-compatible making the appropriate treatments to the vineyard with copper-based products and sulfur which have a lesser environmental impact.
