The vineyards Terre Antiche, meaning as 'Old Earth', were originally planted and owned by a Benedictine convent but was bought by La Giustiniana in 1625. Today, the winery is managed by Magda Pedrini who is focused on producing quality Gavis.
Store in a cool, dark place.
This wine has an attractive lemon yellow colour. It is scented and delicate, with hints of lime zest on the nose, and a lovely zip and verve on the palate alongside a mineral finish.
Pairs well with herby pasta sauces like pesto, white fish or vegetable dishes.
This estate covers 110 hectares in the heart of the commune of Rovereto in Gavi. Originally, this land was part of a Benedictine convent which was bought by the Giustiniani, a military family from the Republic of Genoa, in 1625. Wine was already produced from the then 40 hectares of vineyards, since the Benedictine monks cultivated the first vines planted here. Today, the winery is managed by Magda Pedrini and the production is focussed on showing the potential of Gavi di Gavi from the two single vineyards of the estate: Lugarara and Montessora. The two vineyards sit side by side at 300 metres above sea level, but they have very different soils and showcase two very different expressions of the Cortese grape.
Piedmont - The 40 hectare estate is planted with carefully selected vines. The vineyards are situated between 300-500 metres above sea level. Soils are grey marl with loose, sandy topsoil. The vines face south/south-east and are Guyot trained, planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare.
The grapes were gently pressed, then fermented for two weeks in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks at 16°C. Unoaked, the wine was bottled in the spring following the harvest.
