At the extreme limits of the region Piemonte, famous land for its great red wines, grows one of the best Italian white wine: Gavi. Thank to the success earned in the past decades it was given the highest rank on the qualitative pyramid for the Italian legislation: the appellation DOCG.
The elegance and class, in the nose and on the palate, are the distinctive features of this wine.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Cortese
VINEYARD: The soil is made of thick and solid sandstones, named Serravalle sandstones. The ground has a very light colour. The altitude (300 mt. asl), woods and sea breezes contribute to create a microclimate with strong temperature ranges, which favour the development and the fineness of the aromas.
Training system: Guyot
Vineyard density: 5000 plants per hectare
Harvest: Second half of September
Yield per hectare: 65 hl/Ha
WINEMAKING: Grapes are destalked and soft-pressed at controlled temperature (18?) in steel tanks with selected yeasts.
TASTING: In the glass our Gavi di Gavi shows a clear straw yellow colour. It has a fine bouquet, it is pleasantly fresh, with scents of citrus fruits, white flowers and fruit. On the palate it is delicate, dry, with a very good balance between acidity and minerality. It has a very good structure and a good persistence with a fine bitter almond aftertaste.
Service temperature: 8?-10? (46?F-50?F)
Food pairing: Perfect as aperitif, it matches very good with fresh starters. Highly recommended with fish specialities, like spaghetti with sea food, sea-bass and sea bream in salt crust.
