2013 Rovellotti Ghemme Chioso dei Pomi (750ml)

Nebbiolo from Ghemme, Piedmont, Italy


Ghemme is one of the historic appellations of Alto Piemonte, and the standard blend is 85% Nebbiolo (also called Spanna in these parts) with smaller parts Vespolina and Uva Rara. The Rovellotti 2013 Ghemme Chioso dei Pomi (a blend of 90% Nebbiolo and 10% Vespolina) offers delicately evolved nuances with licorice, cola and campfire ash next to dried cherry and black currant. The big-picture ensemble is fragile and pretty, giving this wine subtle and silky appeal.

92+ points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (Jul 2020)

The 2013 Ghemme Chioso dei Pomi is a powerful heady wine, or as powerful as Ghemme can be. Sweet red plum, spice, mint, leather and dried leaves abound. The 2013 is perhaps a touch rustic, especially in its slightly oxidative, earthy aromatics, but it certainly has plenty of both personality and character.
