Hailing from Piemonte, Italy this white wine is made with thin-skinned Cortese, the white grape.
La Minaia vineyard is located on a slope at an altitude of 300 metres, very close to the Bergaglio’s cellar. The soil is red clay with high iron content which gives minerality to the wines.
Cortese is a white grape variety most famously associated with the crisp, lime-scented wines of Gavi. The variety is known for its bracing acidity and its ability to retain freshness even when grown in warm environments.
The juice is macerated on the skins for 24 to 48 hours with cooler temperatures, allowing for the delicate aromas to come out.
Fermentation in Stainless steel is followed by some lees ageing up to bollting.
