The Vineyards are in the hills in the municipality of Tassarolo. It is a fine and delicate wine, not at all banal, with floral (hawthorn and lily of the valley) and fruity (banana) aromas, accompanied by citrus, hay, and mint notes.
It has a greatly balanced palate with a finish full of fruity notes and well balanced by a pleasant freshness: the classic wine that would be good on the table every day.
It should be served at ten °C in tulip-shaped glasses. The vineyards, also owned, are located in the municipality of Tassarolo and are so named because of a brick kiln that once existed in their place. This aspect also explains the mainly clayey type of soil.
The grapes are immediately transferred to the winery, where they undergo a soft pressing to extract only the best part from the berries. Fermentation, at a controlled temperature, 18-20° C, to maintain the typical richness of Cortese di Gavi's aromas), goes on very slowly, even for 20 days. Bottling is done in February and March to allow the wine a minimum of bottle aging before release.
It is delightful from the spring following the harvest but reaches its greatest enjoyment after a few months of bottle aging. It does not fear a few years in the bottle.
