Colline Novaresi DOC, Ghemme DOCG
Cantalupo is situated at the foothills of the Alps in the town of Ghemme. The property has been owned by the Arlunno family since the 1500s, but it wasn't until 1969 that Carlo Arlunno made the jump from grape growing to high quality winemaking with the creation of Ghemme's new DOCG designation. Today, Carlo's son, Alberto Arlunno, manages the winery as the 15th generation of winemakers in the family.
