Inspired by his passion for Barolo, Tiziano Mazzoni in 1999 returned to his family’s roots in Ghemme to prove that the Langhe wasn’t the only source of world-class Nebbiolo in Piedmont. This historic micro-region in the shadow of the Alps, thanks to pioneers like Mazzoni, is now returning to its former iconic status with wines that showcase Nebbiolo (here called Spanna) at its most soulful. Ghemme’s volcanic, clay-rich soils translate into wines with ample body, structure and character, and Mazzoni’s noninterventionist methods allow grapes here to express themselves fully, without filter. With just 11 acres of land, Mazzoni’s vinous adventure is truly a labor of love; he produces less than 1,200 cases per year.
