Lying along the road that winds its way up from Castiglione Falletto to Monforte, the Attilio Ghisolfi winery is surrounded by the vineyards of Bussia, one of the finest crus in the Barolo wine-growing area. The company has been run by Gianmarco since 1988, when he began bottling the wines that had been produced on the farm for three generations and had always been sold previously in bulk.
The traditional local varieties (Nebbiolo, Barbera, Freisa) are grown on around 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyards, alongside another which is quite unusual for this area: Pinot Noir.
The most prestigious label is Barolo Bricco Visette, though since the 2000 vintage it has been joined - in the very best years only - by the winery’s real showpiece, Barolo Riserva Fantini.
Of lesser standing, though no less important, are the estate’s other wines:
Barbera d’Alba Vigna Lisi, Barbera d’Alba Maggiora, Langhe Alta Bussia, Langhe Pinay e Langhe Nebbiolo.
