”method of production following a rigorous selection of cortese grapes and vinified using the latest winemaking techniques the clean must is gently pressed and fermented at a controlled temperature of 18° c for 20 days. The winemaker comment cortese di gavi is an historical grape variety of the lower piedmont region. Principessa gavia is made from our own estate-grown grapes. Thanks to the soft pressing and the stainless steel fermentation at controlled low temperatures (always below 18°c) its typical delicate aromas and crisp flavours are enhanced. Method of production soft pressing of the grapes centigrade followed by fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks before it is clarified. Seasonal outcome the mild winter with low rainfall favored an early blossoming. Spring cooler than usual and very rainy caused a slowdown in the vegetative activity. The heat of the summer months lasted for a short period; the sporadic storms brought sudden drops in temperature therefore the maceration took place with a slight delay. Nevertheless the quality of the grapes was excellent thanks to the poor but prompt rains of the first september decade which significantly contributed to the ripeness of the grapes. Tasting the color is straw yellow with greenish shades. The floral perfumes are intense with strong notes of mimosa and tilia together with fruity aromas of apple. Soft and well balanced it has a delicate liveness that gives freshness. In the finish the fruity notes are long.” – castello banfi
