Vintage 2022

The vintage is one of the hottest and driest ever: During the winter there was an extraordinary shortage of rainfall, and the climate was mild followed by a period marked by good weather, with no significant rain for over 180 days. In July the vines adjusted on their own to the low availability of water, showing smaller clusters. Picking began as early as the end of August with the grapes used for making sparkling wines, and continued immediately afterwards with the white wine varieties. The harvest of Nebbiolo grapes began around mid-September. The quality was noticeably excellent with heathy grapes although a lower yield-per-hectare.

Winemaking Information

PRE-FERMENTATION PROCEDURES: Grape bunches are hand-sorted on a vibrating table and chilled with carbonic snow to avoid oxidation and reduce considerably the use of sulphur and softly pressed.

This process is “100% screw conveyor free” to handle grapes as gently as possible.

FERMENTATION PROCESS: The grape juice is obtained by soft pressing the whole clusters in an inert environment (nitrogen). The must is cooled before fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature.

BOTTLE REFINEMENT: GRIFO DEL QUARTARO GAVI DI GAVI is refined only in bottle for about 3 months before realising.

The difference is...

GRIFO DEL QUARTARO GAVI del comune DI GAVI is produced to preserve the freshness and the fragrance provided by the vineyards of the village of Gavi, heart of the appellation.
Furthermore, the relevant difference between the temperatures of the day and the night typical of that area, enhances the special flowered aroma of the wine.
Amazing white from Piemonte enjoyable for a very long time.
