The estate, which was first established in the early 1800's, takes its name from the Ghiomo farmhouse, formerly a monastery, in Guarene, in the heart of the Roero area just 2 miles from Alba, home to world famous wines. We take particular pride in the way wine is so deep-rooted in our long-standing country traditions.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Dark red color with purple overtones the nose is intense and thick with a bouquet of red fruits with well-balanced hints of oak. In the mouth it reveals a rare strength. It is full-bodied with great tannic structure with a mellow and extremely long finish. It has excellent cellar potential.
Vineyard Notes
Selection of Barbera and Nebbiolo grapes from vines that have only the very best exposure to the sun. Strictly traditional growing methods are followed in the vineyard, and for several years now the REGIONAL CROP FARMING PROJECT 2078/92 – designed to reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides – has been followed to guarantee that the grapes and the wines themselves are as natural as possible.
Winemaker Notes
A truly structured 2017 vintage, the daughter of a hot year that manages to bring out the best in Barbera by lowering its acidity. Powerful with very ripe fruits and sensations of menthol and undergrowth! 15% of Nebbiolo grapes gives this wine tannins and elegance. A great vintage for this wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Ideal served with red meat, game and matured or spicy cheeses.
