Piedmont, Italy

Gavi is in southern Piedmont in the Monferrato area This hilly area is the cradle of the Cortese grape variety. The sea breezes from Liguria, the characteristics of the soil and the careful work in the vineyards are the ingredients to make fresh and elegant wines with a delicate aroma.

Stefano Massone, the owner of the estate, has been immersed in the culture and tradition of this zone since his childhood, when he started following his father's footsteps. He is in love with his vineyards and with his work. His estate includes 15 vineyards located in 6 municipalities of the Gavi DOCG area. The soils differ from white soils with limestone to red soils with clay. For 40 years, these differences have been used to grow the best Cortese grapes, vinified with care in the modern cellar.

The work done in the vineyard is extremely important for the Gavi wine and viticulture here is meticulous and natural. The vinification is carried out so to enhance the characteristics of the Cortese grape variety and of the terroir.
