Gavi del comune di Gavi DOCG
Our passion for native Piedmontese white grapes led us in 2009 to include Gavi del Comune di Gavi in our range, thanks to the collaboration with a fellow student of Francesco’s at the Alba School of Oenology who owns a family winery and vineyards in Rovereto di Gavi, in the heart of the Gavi DOCG (province of Alessandria). A 6 hectare vineyard is dedicated to our selection and the grapes are vinified on site, while the refinement takes place in our cellar in Canale.
The flower wine obtained after pressing in a pneumatic press is left to refine on selected yeasts for fermentation, which takes place in steel tanks at a temperature of 15°C for about 2-3 weeks. The wine rests in the tanks for 4 months, during which time it is carefully shaken by bâtonnage every 15 days so that the yeasts remain in suspension.
It is a Gavi with a pleasant drinkability, in which both the typical features of the Cortese grape and the clean oenological style of Francesco Monchiero coexist.
