In Italy there are not many areas under the protection of a Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin, the most restrictive appellation in the Italian wine scene. In Piedmont, those devoted to Nebbiolo-based productions are represented by Ghemme, Gattinara, Barbaresco, Barolo and Roero. Ghemme, to have the characteristics that make it so recognized, must adhere to a specification that requires a maximum yield of 80q per hectare, a minimum aging of 3 years. Its exclusivity is also linked to the fact of being produced only on 50 hectares of the best plots in the area.   Cultivated on a soil of fluvial-alluvial origin, relatively acid and rich in clay, the vineyards benefit from good drainage as they are located on the hill slopes and are treated in a rigorously manual way, as happens for the harvest. The thinning technique, leaving only one bunch per branch, drastically increases the cost of the grape, but it is fundamental for the quality as it favors the concentration of flavors and aromas. The latter are further accentuated by particular climatic conditions, with significant diurnal-nocturnal temperature changes, due to the fresh currents coming from the nearby Alps.   The result is an elegant and complex wine, recognized over the years for its richness, its structure and its aromas, able to mesmerize when it is at its maximum potential, that is, after adequate aging.   Although less well known than its relative Gattinara, Ghemme, thanks to a growing high quality production, is undoubtedly destined to see its fame as a prestigious wine grow.
