Gavi

DOCG

A great white wine from Piedmont produced by the Cortese grape in the province of Alessandria, near the town of Gavi. The Gavi wine is fruity and fragrant with pleasant hints of fresh fruit and white flowers. If harvested early, the Cortese grape offers acid wines, with lightweight color and body, to be consumed in the first three years. The Gavi produced from riper grapes, more structured, can hone a long time in the bottle opening to tertiary aromas and minerals of great elegance. Gavi is the perfect wine as an aperitif or to accompany fish dishes and delicate dishes.

Characteristics

A delicate bouquet, fruity and fragrant with lovely hints of fresh fruit and white flowers. It has good body on the palate, well-proportioned, persistent with marked sapidity and balance.

Vinification

After the whole grapes are soft pressed, the wine is sent to thermo-conditioned stainless steel vats where the alcoholic fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature of approx. 18°C. After natural decanting, it is racked off several times before the onset of winter. At the end of winter it is cold stabilised to avoid the formation of sediments. The wine is bottled in the spring.
