Gavi di Gavi Picollo Ernesto Piedmont Italy
The 17-acre property of Picollo Ernesto is perched among the rolling hills that surround the town of Gavi.The climate here is much more mediterranean than in the north, benefiting from the constant maritime breezes, unique to the southern Piedmont. Picollo Ernesto’s vineyards sit near 260 meters above sea level in Rovereto di Gavi, the most prestigious area of the appellation. Their nine hectares of vineyards are planted exclusively with Cortese, a hearty, high acid white varietal that thrives in difficult soil, dry climate, and full sun exposure (which Rovereto amply provides). Lorenzo Picollo founded the winery in 1945.
A dry and fruit-forward wine that is both drinkable and food-friendly. Made with attention to detail, this wine demonstrates the characteristics of the Gavi terroir where fruitiness and minerality intermingle.
