About the vineyard hillside vineyards in the tassarolo region. A stylish graceful wine far from commonplace. Floral nuance of hawthorn and lily complement fruiter notes of banana followed by subtly pungent citrus hay and mint. Beautifully balanced on the palate it concludes with a tasty fruit-edged finish enlivened by a refreshing crispness. The ideal wine to enjoy every day or as often as you wish. Serve in tulip-shaped glass at 10° c. Vineyards with any of our property are located in the municipality of tassarolo; their name derives from the brick furnace that once stood there. This also explains the highly clayey nature of the soil. Winemaking 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 a minimal ageing period in bottles before the wine is sold and to make sure it reaches a certain level of maturity and balance. Tasting notes those looking for an intriguing gavi with great finesse and ideal balance can do no better that fornaci with its fruit-rich and floral bouquet beautifully both elements so melded together as to be scarcely separable their marriage made even more seductive by smooth notes of candied almond and beeswax.
