Marchese Raggio Old Annee Gavi del Comune di Gavi 2015, La Lomellina
Out of stock
Straw yellow in colour with light gold hints, featuring intense aromas of ripe yellow fruit, mineral notes, and prominent dried fruit and almond notes. The palate is complex and evolved, balanced and supported by a good structure and persistence.
An organic producer of significant importance yet almost completely undiscovered, La Lomellina was the first estate to plant Cortese
grapes in the region of Gavi, with nearly five hundred years of history.
The best grapes were manually harvested and collected in 20 kg
perforated boxes. Soft pressing of the grapes and fermantation of the
must in stainless steel tanks at low temperature (14-16°C) followed, until all
the sugars were completely converted to alcohol. Malolactic fermentation
avoided to retain primary fruit. Aged for 12 months in stainless steel on its
lees, with frequent battonage. Fined for 36 months in barrel.
