THE GAVI IN THE HEART OF GAVI
Between the eleven villages in which this wine can be produced, Gavi is the heart of this area, central to all the other towns where it is produced and it is considered a particularly elegant wine for the finesse of its fruit.
Gavi is among the most important Piedmontese whites, surely the best-known after Moscato: Gavi is considered a classic and elegant wine that brings freshness to food and wine pairing. We have produced it for over fifty years and we know that this Gavi makes the Cortese grapes noble with its elegance and charm.
Varietal: Cortese grapes of Comune di Gavi
Altitude: 300 metres a.s.l.
Soil: clay, marls, rich in minerals

Gentle pressing of the grapes is followed by cold racking of the must and fermentation in steel vats. The wine is aged “sur lie” (French for “on lees”, without racking) until the new year when it is bottled.
The Gavi of this terroir is a wine that makes noble the Cortese grapes; the grapes, in an elegant and delicate way, develope intense varietal fragrances. Straw yellow in colour with green reflections turning golden over the years. The palate is dry, fresh and harmonious, medium-bodied, soft and captivating.
