The Ghiomo estate, first established in the early 1800’s, takes its name from a tool used to construct wooden wine barrels. The estate is situated in Guarene which lies between Langa and Roero, just 2 kilometers from Alba, home to many world famous wines and white truffles. The vineyards are very similar in characteristics and altitude to those of La Morra, in the heart of Barolo. The soils are rich in grey marl, clay, and a little sand, leading to wines that express great texture and character. It is the choice of the estate to only cultivate native vines such as Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Arneis. Ghiomo takes particular pride in the fact that their wine is so deep-rooted in their long-standing country traditions.
Strictly traditional growing methods are followed in the vineyard. Though they do not like to be defined as biodynamic, organic, or conventional growers, the property has followed organic practices for several years now to guarantee that the grapes and the wines themselves are as natural and expressive of the terroir as possible
The 2017 Ghiomo "Fussot" Arneis has been crafed from 2 different vineyards: “Fusòt” and “Gheja”, each of which face south and consist of marly soil. Each vineyard has been cultivated according to the classical Guyot method, with short trimming. By thinning out the fruit by 15-20% should produce about 2 kg of fruit from each vine.
Upon harvesting the grapes, winemaker Giuseppino Ghiomo utilizes a light press and fully separates the skins from the must. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The finished wine is allowed to rest in steel tanks until bottling, which happens in the first months of spring.
Intense straw color with pale green reflexes. A delicate, complex and seducing bouquet with floral hints, a fresh, fruity flavor of ripe pear, peach and pineapple. The taste is pleasantly dry with just a light hint of wildflower honey, which gives a fresh and long lasting aftertaste.
