Food Pairings for Terre da Vino Gavi di Gavi DOCG "Masseria Dei Carmelitani"
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.
