Denominazione di Orgine Controllata e garantita
del comune di Gavi
Produced with Cortese grapes from the zone of Novi Ligure (AL).
The vines, trained with the guyot
method, are about 15-18 years old and yield approximately 90-100 quintals per hectare.
The grapes are generally harvested in early September.
The grapes are collected in baskets and immediately taken to the cellar for soft pressing.
Only free-run juice, the finest part of the must, is used, stored in low-temperature steel vats
for 24 hours to clarify. As soon as the must begins to ferment, it is transferred to
temperature-controlled stainless steel vats to promote fermentation.
After alcoholic fermentation,
Gavi is conserved and aged in stainless steel vats for 2-3 months. Before bottling, the wine is clarified,
filtered, and stabilised only if absolutely necessary. The bottled wine is racked in temperature-controlled
rooms until delivery.
Very light straw colour. Fine, intense nose. Very dry and crisp.
Server at 10° C. Excellent with seafood, appetisers, and first
courses with fish sauces.
