Ghemme is located in the hills of the Novara province, and Cantalupo has the highest vineyards on this side of the Sesia River, with soils that are varied and complex. The majority of their production is Nebbiolo, but the DOCG also allows the addition of Vespolina and/or Uva Rara, locally known as Bonarda Novarese, at a maximum of 25%. Cantalupo offers several different Ghemme wines, including Cantalupo Anno Primo, Collis Carellae, Collis Breclemae, Signore di Bayard, and fresher and more fruity wines like Carolus, Il Mimo, Primigenia, VillaHorta, and Agamium. Although much of the production is produced from the Nebbiolo vines, there is still great interest in the native Vespolina, as well as in the Greco di Ghemme.

"Rose petal, mint, violets, sweet red cherries and licorice are some of the many notes that blossom in a firm, classically built wine that will make lovers of traditionally made Nebbiolos weak at the knees. Vibrant, translucent and deeply expressive, the 2008 is simply magnificent from the very first taste, (VM, 96 points)".
