Terre da Vino Gavi di Gavi DOCG "Masseria Dei Carmelitani" 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyard location and profile: The cortese grape grown on the hillsides in the comune of Gavi produces the wine known as Gavi, which can also utilise the Gavi subzone name. The Masseria dei Carmelitani is a 25 hectare (62 acre) farming estate located in the hills on the left bank of the Lemme. In the 14th century it belonged to the Carmelite monks, who cultivated vineyards around the monastery and produced a highly-respected white wine. Vinification and ageing: After a light pressing, the juice is clarified and fermented for about 10 days at 16-17oC. The low temperature serves to preserve the delicate varietal grape aromas. SENSORY PROFILE Colour: Green-edged straw yellow. Bouquet: Rich and full, intense scents of fruit float over floral notes. Palate: Pleasantly dry and crisp, full and deep in the mouth, with the finesse that is achieved through perfect balance between structure and suppleness.

The many guests who arrive at our winery every day cannot help but notice that they are literally surrounded in every direction by vineyards. The view is breath-taking, unique not only because the Langhe is one of the world’s most renowned winegrowing region, but also because our own cellar in Barolo is the focus of a concentration of wine production practically unequaled in Italy. This impressive production capability allows us to pursue a truly rigorous selection process and to offer wines of the highest quality as well as some extremely distinctive and individual bottlings. Our product line includes wines recognised world-wide as well as native varietals known only locally, but the philosophy remains the same: only wines from Piedmont, only wines that are DOC and DOCG! We invite everyone to visit us in Barolo: it is indeed a rare occasion when you can witness, from high above on a flying passageway, all the steps of winemaking, from fermentation through ageing and bottling!
