Gavi DOCG del Comune di Gavi


The vineyards are all located in land pertaining to the town of Gavi, which is the most famous wine-growing area of the entire production zone. The hills are mainly composed of calcareous-clay soil, sandy marls and very fine silt which give the wine a mineral-rich structure and allow the bouquet to open up rapidly.

To preserve and enhance the characteristics of the wine, the entire grape transformation process takes place in Gavi. The grapes are collected and quickly taken to the cellar where they are softly pressed. The resulting must is fermented in thermo-conditioned steel tanks at a low temperature. Then the wine is stored in steel tanks or cement tanks lined with fiberglass to preserve its typical, fresh fragrance. The prolonged permanence on its own fermentation yeasts makes this wine long-lived and able to evolve even further once uncorked and poured in the glass.

The color is a pale straw-yellow with greenish highlights. Its intense nose is refined, fruity, and floral bringing to mind golden apples and green almonds. It has a clear overtone of chamomile flowers. The taste is elegant, harmonious and persistent, and at the same time flavorful, with balanced mineral notes.

Food pairings:ideal with seafood, shellfish and all fish dishes. It goes well with vegetable risottos, tasty salads and fresh or medium-aged cheeses.
