ABOUT THE VINEYARD
The vineyards are located in the municipality of Gavi; their name derives from dialect and the meaning is like Rolling stones. This explains the limestone cha- racter of the soil.
The grapes are transferred to the cellar immediately and undergo soft pressing to extract the very best from the fruit. Fermentation takes place slowly at a controlled temperature (18-20°C, to maintain the typically rich aromas of the Cortese di Gavi varietal) and lasts for up to 20 days. The wine is bottled in february or March to allow a minimal ageing, period in bottles before the wine is sold, and to make sure it reaches a certain level of maturity and balance.
The wine is very pleasant the spring after the harvest but is at its most enjoyable after a few months in the bottles. It can be kept in bottles for several years without suffering in quality.
