It is a product born in the back of pharmacies and "colonial shops" between the end of '800 and the beginning of '900, probably inspired by an ancient habit of using spicy wine as a medicine against light forms of malaise. The idea of transforming a noble wine such as Barolo into an herbal treatment is to be attributed to a pharmacist from Monforte: Dr. Giuseppe Cappellano.
Do you know Sergio Gomba? Perhaps, it is easier to know his wines.
To tell the story means to reveal the results of a lifetime work, tough and capable. A life spent, in the last 25 years, to cultivate a dream: the rebirth of Cascina Boschetti, just above the village of Barolo. Sergio Gomba’s work has turned the house and the vineyards into a beautiful estate in one of the most beautiful locations in the heart of the Barolo DOCG.
“The work has never scared me, even now that I have a certain age,” he says without em-phasis, this man of few words.
