Description

PRODUCTION AREA
Grown at the Principessa Gavia single vineyard estate, located in the Classic Gavi region of Novi Ligure.

METHOD OF PRODUCTION
Following a rigorous selection of Cortese grapes and vinified using the latest winemaking techniques, the clean must is gently pressed and fermented at a controlled temperature of 18° C for 20 days.

THE WINEMAKER COMMENT
Cortese di Gavi is an historical grape variety of the lower Piedmont Region. Principessa Gavia is made from our own estate-grown grapes. Thanks to the soft pressing and the stainless steel fermentation at controlled low temperatures (always below 18°C), its typical delicate aromas and crisp flavours are enhanced.

METHOD OF PRODUCTION
Soft pressing of the grapes centigrade followed by fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks before it is clarified.

SEASONAL OUTCOME
The mild winter, with low rainfall, favored an early blossoming. Spring, cooler than usual and very rainy, caused a slowdown in the vegetative activity. The heat of the summer months lasted for a short period; the sporadic storms brought sudden drops in temperature, therefore the maceration took place with a slight delay. Nevertheless, the quality of the grapes was excellent, thanks to the poor, but prompt, rains of the first September decade, which significantly contributed to the ripeness of the grapes.
