Wine Castellari Bergaglio, Rolona Gavi di Gavi, 2017
With hints of resin and pepper and its woods-like character, Rolona represents the most austere side of Gavi, which in this case is enriched by a fine minerally note and hints of fresh greens, which combine to increase its depth. Dry and decisive on the palate, it boasts an acidity that powers the progression in the mouth.
White - flinty, refreshing and classic.
The bouquet is rich and long lingering, offering crisp, refreshing aromas of pear and green apple, dried hay, plus an intriguing hint of citrus and earthy mineral. This Gavi is most impressive on the palate, with a leisurely development and lively crispness that attest to its absolutely classic style.
Lovely food wine perfect for Summer picnics and relaxing times. Pairs well with seafood, fish, cured meats and chicken. Very enjoyable with Asian cuisine.
The grapes are transferred to the cellar immediately and undergo soft pressing to extract the very best from the fruit. Fermentation takes place slowly at a controlled temperature (18-20°C, to maintain the typically rich aromas of the Cortese di Gavi varietal) and lasts for up to 20 days. The wine is bottled in February or March to allow minimal ageing period in bottles before the wine is sold and to make sure it reaches a certain level of maturity and balance.
