AZIENDA AGRICOLA PLATINETTI GUIDO A GENUINE FAMILY BUSINESS
GHEMME DOCG vigna Ronco Maso
Platinetti's Ghemme DOCG is produced using solely this wine region’s most famed grape variety namely, Nebbiolo. In particular, only the best clusters from the Ronco Maso vineyard are used, being those coming from the higher slopes called “lo specchio” ("the mirror").
Traditionally, these few select rows are left until last during the harvest in order to let the grapes fully mature on the plant.
EXPERIENCE, TRADITION, CARE AND TECHNIQUE
These words are the keys to understanding the philosophy that guides Andrea Fontana’s work as a farmer and winemaker, whose wines are the embodiment of the soil and sky where his vines grow.
Every action is governed by the ambitious project of obtaining healthy grapes for wines that are first and foremost traditional and genuine. Work in the vineyard focusses on the needs of the plants throughout the seasons, with a harmonious approach to production, which limits plant stress caused by excessive interventions.
At harvest time, each operation is carried out manually to allow the winemaker to hand pick the berries, cluster by cluster, destined for each label in order to obtain the highest quality product possible.
