Winemaking Philosophy

The Cortese grape variety, grown on the hills of the municipality of Gavi (in the province of Alessandria), is used to make a wine that bears the subappellation “del Comune di Gavi”. These vineyards are situated 250-300 metres above sea level, in soils with a mainly sandy marly structure layers of deep marl alternate with sandstone the colours of these soils vary from light brown to very light.
After a short period of cold maceration on skins followed by fermentation, the wine spends a while maturing on lees, with partial ageing in small barrels. This is followed by a brief period of bottle ageing.
