Rovellotti Winery

Cantina Rovellotti, today also known as “Antonello and Paolo Rovellotti”, has been part of the Ghemme Castle (NO) for 600 years and still makes wine in several small historic cellars, within the medieval stronghold.

The vineyards around Ghemme stretch over 62 acres on the hills around Novara: their position, exposed to alpine winds, is particularly suitable for the cultivation of the native varieties of Nebbiolo, Vespolina, Innominabile, and Bonarda – these grapes have thus found their ideal microclimate to develop incomparable aromatic features, also thanks also to the temperature range between day and night. The very acidic component of the soil makes the grapes quite unique: in fact, they provide a very specific character to the wine eventually produced by this winery. The clayey matrix, which can be found in the nearby Novara rice paddies, holds water like a sponge, boosting the growth of the bunches which appear quite large and with an optimal surface-skin ratio.

This winery has not used chemical additives for twenty years and the vineyards are managed as much naturally as possible, so much so that dragonflies and other beneficial insects have recently recolonized this area.

According to a painstaking harvest choice, the grapes can be used, alternatively, for the vinification of Ghemme D.O.C.G. and Ghemme D.O.C.G. Riserva, or of Colline Novaresi D.O.C. Nebbiolo, and Novara Hills D.O.C. red wine.
