Rovereto Gavi del Comune di Gavi DOCG 2020

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

The 2020 vintage began with a winter season that did not present problems, characterized by mild temperatures and little rainfall. The first part of spring was relatively dry and sunny, suggesting an early vintage. This was not the case in May and June, with a considerable number of rainy days that caused a slowdown in the vegetative development. Though the rain did allow for an important accumulation of water in the ground, fundamental during summer season.

tasting note

Aroma intense, elegant with notes of white flowers, pear, chive, and minerals. Well structured, fragrant, and long, round and savory finish.
