Ghëddo is committed to sustainable farming with no use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers, they cultivate only three hectares in 3 different vineyards which allows for meticulous work in the vineyard and extreme cleanliness in the cellar producing wines that faithfully express the vintage in all its aspects.
This wine is made with 100% Nebbiolo.
FROM THE VINTNER:
“Our Langhe Nebbiolo comes from 3 different vineyards in La Morra – The Berri Vineyard fruit gives the wine its aromatics; the Brandini Vineyard fruit gives the wine its body; the Rocchettevino Vineyard fruit gives the wine its structure. All vineyards are managed with extreme care: thorough pruning, good shoot selection, and meticulous grape thinning – cutting off all the wings and the lower part of the big bunches. After harvest the grapes are destemmed without crushing and transferred to the tank for fermentation. During maceration the goal is to extract all of the aromatics and color while avoiding over-extraction, allowing us to produce a wine with a medium structure that’s focused on fruitiness and freshness. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred in part to stainless steel tanks, and another part is aged in oak. We bottle after 18 months of aging when we feel that tannins are ripened.”
