GAVI - DOCG
We chose the name of our countryhouse for Gavi DOCG. Produced by vinifying separately micro parcels of our vineyards, this wine is a direct expression of our territory and our style.
Gavi DOCG was born from the idea of representing the different characteristics of our vineyards and best express our winemaking style. Mapping the vineyards allowed us to identify the highest quality production areas, thus to vinify only the best grapes. This wine is produced with the best parcels of every single vineyard, vinified separately and then assembled. Grapes, harvested by hand, are destemmed and through soft pressing the flower must is separated. The must obtained is sent in insulated stainless-steel tanks, where, after a first clarification, it undergoes a cold fermentation with controlled temperature. Maturation continues in steel tanks working on the fine lees with periodic handling. This type of maturation gives body, softness and long finish and allows us to fully express the qualities of Cortese grapes. A fresh and elegant wine perfect both as an aperitif or paired with fish and white meat.
