Gavi di Gavi DOCG
Price per bottle 0,75l
A few miles from Casale Monferrato, lies the small village of Olivola. It is a municipality that has little more than a hundred inhabitants, and a wonderful view on vineyards perched on the Monferrato hills. Just outside the village, stands Villa Candiani-Guazzo, once a stately home and nowadays the residence of Bricco dei Guazzi. The Company stands on top of a hill, “Bric” in local dialect, and is surrounded by thirty acres of vineyards, that produce the grapes used for the wine production of the company. Against the backdrop of vineyards, behind the centuries-old cedar tree which is the symbol of the Company, stands the Monte Rosa. Cortese grapes come from a native vine that boasts very ancient origins and it’s wide-spread throughout the Alessandrino area. Known for its easy drinkability and for its immediate pleasantness, it gives rise to wines that are clean, fresh and vital. In the Municipality of Gavi, where this wine gets its name, this production is protected by the DOCG label which guarantees the product’s high quality.
