Rovereto Gavi del Comune di Gavi DOCG 2019

Region: Italy / Piedmont
Grapes: 100% Cortese

The hillside of Rovereto has always been considered the historic Great Cru of Gavi, in the municipality of Gavi, and its overall extension is approx. 148 acres. Its topography is derived from the presence of ancient oak forests and clay soil which is rich in iron. The micro-climate is unique due to the sea breezes and the nearby Apennine mountains. Rovereto comes from vineyards with an average age of 25.

harvest note

In terms of weather, it has been a particular yet very interesting year. It has started mild and dry during winter and early spring, with a couple of moderate snowfalls. The months of April and May have experienced abundant rains that delayed bud breaking and flowing, while the following month of June was hot and dry. July began with heavy rains that led to a gradual maturation in a hot and dry summer season that did not register excessive temperatures, these conditions lasted until October 20th. Yield has been poorer than usual and the maturation period was similar to a classic vintage; these conditions are the ideal ones to ensure excellent quality. Harvesting took place from September 21-28; gathering healthy grapes that are near perfect. The wine is varied and complex on the nose, the flavor presents remarkably harmonious. Freshness and pleasant on the palate with a long finish. In our opinion, the 2019 vintage must be included among the best vintages of recent years.

tasting note

Straw yellow with green hues. On the nose it is intense, elegant, persistent with notes of white flowers, golden apple, chive and minerals. The palate is well-structured, fragrant and a pleasingly long, round savory finish.
