Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi DOC 2021
Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi perfectly reflects the historic identity of Villa Sparina. Bright yellow colour. A delicate bouquet of spring blossoms, peaches, lemon citrus and a hint of thyme lifts from the glass. Lively and fresh, this Gavi is soft on the palate. Full and rich flavours melding a core of peach, lemon and grapefruit with layers of stoney minerals, honey and a hint of white pepper. Closes with a gorgeous mineral finish.
100% Cortese. The grapes come from Villa Spainra's estate vineyards in the municipality of Gavi. The vineyards have clay and marl soil compositions, are mainly south or south-west facing and sit at an altitude of 250–300 metres.
Hand-harvest and soft crushing of the grapes. Fermentation for 3 weeks at a controlled temperature of 18°C in stainless steel tanks.
Fun Fact: The unmistakable Villa Sparina bottle was developed together with designer Giacomo Bersanetti. The striking amphora-shaped bottle drew inspiration from an ancient Roman relic discovered on the estate's property during a period of restoration. It has become a symbol for the estate – “elegant but strong, modern but with an ancient touch”.
