Gavi DOCG del comune di Gavi

"Masseria dei Carmelitani"
Winemaking Philosophy

The Cortese grape variety grown on the hills of the municipality of Gavi (in the province of Alessandria) produces a wine which can boast the subappellation "del Comune di Gavi". 

These vineyards are positioned 250-300 metres above sea level on soils that are mainly sandy-marl: deep marls alternating with layers of sandstone the colours of these soils range from light brown to light. 
Pressing is soft, and the clear, free run must ferments at a temperature of 16-17 °C for about ten days. No malolactic fermentation takes place, in order to maintain a slightly acidic vein After a short period of bottle ageing, the wine is ready at the beginning of the new year.
