Gemma - or 'gem' in English - does exactly what is says on the tin. But not in a Ronseal kind of way; don't try to stain your garden shed with it.


No, instead, try decanting this rare jewel of a red wine, slow-cooking a bollito misto (northern Italian stew), slipping into a velvet dressing gown and then heading down to the garden shed (which you've painted with Ronseal) and enjoying its gloriously dark and complex flavours of sour cherry and violet and intense, rich, subtle spice in total serenity.


Gemma came into being in 1978, when Silvano Piacentini decided to found a new wine producing enterprise in the commune of Serralunga d’Alba, located inside an old winery which had formerly belonged to the Marchesi Falletti’s Opera Pia Barolo. The premises have now been completely renovated, with state-of-the art vinification equipment and new barrels.


Cantine Gemma actually owns around 16 hectares (39.5 acres) of vineyards, divided up between the communes of Serralunga and Monforte d’Alba, of which 65% consist of plantings of Nebbiolo for Barolo.
