The entire estate covers 110 hectares in the heart of the commune of Rovereto in Gavi, of which 40 are under vine. Two single vineyard wines are produced, both of which are unoaked so the character of each vineyard shines through.

 

Lugarara is a single vineyard at around 300 metres above sea level. Soils are grey marl with loose, sandy topsoil.

 

The grapes (100% Cortese) were handpicked in the last week of September. Upon arrival at the winery, they were gently pressed, then cool fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Unoaked, the wine was bottled in the spring following the harvest.

 

Straw-yellow with a greenish hue. The wine‘s pronounced aromas of stone fruit and lime peel are followed by a subtle yet persistent bouquet of green apples. The palate is well balanced with a fresh acidity and good structure. Pleasant almond notes linger on the finish.
