The estate Anselma Giacomo was founded in the early twentieth century
and since then the tradition in winemaking has been maintained.
You will find the caracter of the company in every sip of wine.
It is currently managed by the son of Giaculin Anselma, Franco, and his wife Maria. The passion and knowledge in traditional winemaking was handed down from generation to generation. The Anselma family owns vineyards in the area of Serralunga d'Alba, one of the most prestigious territory in the Langhe where the soil is calcareous clay and where the mild climate is intertwined with the area and has a positively influence on the quality of the grapes.
The land we own is part of the famous VignaRionda vineyard, a "Premier Grand Cru" to use a bit of French. Much attention is above all paid to the work in the vineyard from the perspective that great wines are produced only from grapes of excellent quality. Maintaining the richness of the earth requires very much work and a lot of passion.
”With patience you get a great wine which has no rivals”.
Our history goes back to the early 20th century when Felice Anselma, the grandfather of Franco, decided to produce his own wine. He firmly believed that the geographical position of land already had made a natural selection in grapes and therefore he chose to only make the traditional red wines from the Langhe area from the native grapes. A philosophy which was carried on by Felice's son Giaculin and nowadays by grandson Franco.
We solely produce authentic red wines from the area with native grapes. One of our vineyards lies on the prestigious VignaRionda hillside. It is here that we harvests the grapes for our flagship wine the Barolo VignaRionda Riserva.
Collaretto is where our other vineyards are situated. It is the next hillside after VignaRionda and houses the grapes for our Barolo Collaretto.
