Variety: Cortese 100%.

Vineyard: Great historic white wine from Piedmont whose grapes come from the area recognized for excellent Cortese production since 1856. Vineyards in the Gavi area, comprising only 11 municipalities in the Province of Alessandria. The soil is composed mainly of clay marls.

Vinification: The grapes are pressed the same evening of harvest and placed in stainless steel vats. Alcoholic fermentation begins at a temperature of 15-16°C, necessary to preserve the delicate aromas, for a full 15 days. This is followed by a short aging in steel until bottling, which generally takes place in early spring.

Pairings: Try it with battered squash blossoms, baked guinea fowl or ricotta and scampi ravioli.

We also recommend you look at the Gavi del Comune di Gavi DOCG, which comes close as taste notes.

Fine bouquet of good intensity and persistence gives slightly floral scents.


Straw yellow color.


The taste is fresh, soft, graceful and well-structured.

“Fresh spring appetizer, with fried squash blossoms and acacia flowers … dreamy.”
