The fruit comes from vineyards near the town of Gavi, where calcareous clay, volcanic, iron and chalky limestone soils together with the area’s mediating Mediterranean breezes and cool mountain winds create an ideal microclimate for growing the Cortese grape to optimal ripeness. The 100% Cortese grapes were pressed without crushing, and the must was cold settled for 12 to 15 hours before undergoing a low-temperature fermentation for 20 to 25 days. The wine was then aged on the lees for three months in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
The wine shows citrus and mineral aromas before lime and green apple flavors on the palate. This Gavi has a fresh character, crisp acidity and a lengthy finish.
Pairs with grilled or roasted pork, veal and poultry, deep sea fish and shellfish.
