Gianmarco Ghisolfi is the fourth generation winemaker from the prestigious Barolo growing area of Monforte d’Alba. In 1988 Gianmarco took over his Family’s 7 hectares and in the same year bottled the Barolo that his family had been making and selling in bulk for the past three generations. All vineyards are located in the Visette region of Monforte known for its ideal growing conditions that include southern and south west exposure with near perfect altitudes of 350 metres above sea level that allow for day and night temperature changes that prolong the growing season creating complex aromas. There are documents dating back to the 12th century referring to the cultivation of Nebbiolo in Visette. Gianmarco uses only organic fertilizer in the vineyard and rather than herbicides he mechanically turns the soil instead. In the cellar Gianmarco uses a variety of vats for fermentation as well as different size barrels for aging. 

Tasting Note:
This wine is a wonderful bright ruby red with an aromatic floral bouquet of rose petal, crunchy red cherry and cranberry combined with with hints of baking spice, anise, cardamom and cedar. There is a warmth here with elevated alcohols but the use of different formats oak gives length and softens the tannins giving a velvety long finish.

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Medium finish.
