Antonello and Paolo brothers, currently at the helm of the estate Cantine Rovellotti Viticoltori in Ghemme, started off their new agricultural business back in the seventies, driven by the recognition of the new D.O.C. appellation for the Ghemme wine.
After 45 harvests, the estate grows now its grapes over a cultivated area of over 20 hectares (45,000 acres), currently being expanded and renewed through the use of new selected indigenous varietals.
Rovellotti works only local native grapes such as Nebbiolo, Vespolina, Bonarda and an indigenous white variety. The wines are vinified and aged in the historic cellars located in the 14th century Castle of Ghemme that lies in the province of Novara, in the heart of Alto Piemonte.
Annual production: 90,000 bottles
Export: 40% (U.S., U.K., Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, and Russia)
