Tasting Notes

Some delicate pear and apple on the nose, but the dominant notes are still mineral and a slightly smokey gunshot character. An extremely subtle, yet complex wine, typical of Gavi di Gavi. Loads of acidity and minerality leave a stoney dryness on the palate that’s reminiscent of oyster shells. Good fruit concentration, with an austere character.

Technical Notes

Destemming and pressing take place on the evening following harvest. Then, the must is poured into stainless steel vats, where it undergoes maceration along with skins at a temperature of 12°C. After skin separation, alcoholic fermentation begins and goes on for about 15 days at a temperature of 15-16°C; this temperature is needed to preserve the wine’s delicate flavour. Later on, a short refinement will take place in stainless steel vats.
