Why we love it
Made with hand picked Cortese grapes from a single vineyard located in Rovereto, this Gavi di Gavi is one step above the others with its elegance, fantastic acidity, with a fruity nose with recognisable apple hints, on the palate is fresh, refreshing, with plenty of flavour and a never ending mineral finish
The artisan who made it
The I Moncalvi winery is now run by Mauro, the current generation, and Mauro is very passionate about his wines. The vineyards, mainly Cortese used to make Gavi but also a bit of Barbera and Dolcetto, are located in the heart of the Gavi area, in the province of Alessandria, in Piedmont, and are between twenty and fifty years old and together with the location, produce wonderful, high quality wines different from the others in the area. Mauro is so devoted to making the best wines he can, that he only uses the very best grapes to produce them, the remaining are usually sold to nearby wineries.
