The style of the wines of Ghemme is not as full or powerful as the nebbiolo-based wines of Alba, as the variety here in these sunny hills produces a more delicate and ethereal style of wine, with more red fruit and spice elements, though never short on complexity or intensity of flavor.

"The 2006 Ghemme is a little firmer and fresher than the 2007 tasted alongside it. Rose petals, flowers, mint and sweet red cherries all take shape in a striking wine loaded with personality and pure class. The slightly more classic style will appeal to traditionalists, but the truth is both the 2006 and 2007 are quite beautiful; they will just suit different needs. A clean, mineral-drenched finish rounds things out in style."
