Wine tasting advice

Garnet ruby red.
Enchanting aromas of violet, wood fruits, plums and dried red fruits (cherries, blueberries). Notes of leather, liquorice, wild herbs and thyme. Spicy finish of dark chocolate.
Full, structured, with round tannins. Balsamic notes and delicate mineral veins. Nice length.

Vinification

Fermentation at 28° -30°C. Manual treading twice a day to extract tannins. Ageing in Slavonian barrels oak for two and a half years, then in bottles.

Terroir

As varied as it is rich, the terroir of the Ghemme Hill tells us the story. It is a mineralogical sample of the Alpine Range composed of granite pebbles, porphyry, gravel debris, shale, serpentine and dolomitic rock delamination. This wealth is inherited from a site that is now considered one of the greatest geological values in the world. This site appeared along the Valsesia following the collision between the African and European continents that began more than 60 million years ago and is still ongoing today. The Mount Rose glacier, digging the Valsesia, deposited its rocky heritage on what is today the hill of Ghemme. This heritage is recognized by UNESCO as a Global Geopark.

Le vigneron

The Cantalupo domain was born two centuries ago. Its history is intimately linked to the territory of the Ghemme and the Arlunno family, whose presence in the region has been attested since the beginning of the 16th century. In 1969, the Ghemme appellation was created and Carlo Arlunno started revisiting the Cantalupo estate to put quality back at the heart of its production.

Carlo is always calm and benevolent when he speaks about his estate. He can spend hours detailing the geological formations that led to the constitution of this land, of which he cannot hide pride.
