The Vineyardds

As reported by some epigraphs of the early XIX century, the Cortese grape has been cultivated at La Lomellina for more than two hundred years.

Winemaking

  • Harvest

    Harvest

    When the grapes reach a perfect balance of sugars, aromatic substances and acidity, the bunches are hand harvested, placed in 20 kg crates, and brought to the winery. There, the grapes are cooled down and then softly pressed.

  • Selection

    Selection

    Only the best grapes are chosen to make our Marchese Raggio Gavi DOCG del Comune di Gavi. After harvesting, the grapes ‘rest’ in the winery for a night. The day after, the bunches are meticulously controlled and selected. If a bunch does not satisfy our quality standards, it is discarded.

  • Pressing

    Pressing

    The soft pressing separates the must from the skins. The must is then placed into stainless steel tanks, where the alcoholic fermentation takes place at the controlled temperature of 14-16°C.

  • Battonages

    Battonages

    When the fermentation is complete, the wine is transferred again into stainless steel tanks, where it is kept at the low temperature of 8-10°C. There, frequent batonnages are performed, to increase the richness and aromatic complexity of our Gavi.

  • Vinification

    Vinification

    The oenologist supervises the vinification process. His goal is to exalt the terroir and the typical characteristics of the grape variety and of our region. Since antiquity, Cortese has been grown on the hills around the town of Gavi, where our estate is. Here this grape has been able to express the best of its potential, both in terms of quality and longevity. The resulting wine is unique.

  • Bottling

    Bottling

    During aging, the wine is regularly tasted to establish the moment when it is ready to be bottled. Generally, this happens between 6 and 8 months after the harvest. The wine also spends 3 to 4 months aging in the bottle before putting it on the market.
