Straw-yellow in colour with a greenish hue, this wine delights with aromas of white fruit, stone fruit and lime zest, which are immediately beguiling and are followed by a subtle yet persistent bouquet of green apples. The palate is well balanced with fresh acidity and good structure, and there are almond notes on the finish.

Description

This estate covers 110 hectares in the heart of the commune of Rovereto in Gavi, 40 hectares of which are under vine. Here the grapes give pure, rich and balanced wines. Two single vineyard wines are produced, both of which are unoaked so the character of each vineyard shines through in the glass. The ‘Lugarara’ is always the more open and forward of the two wines. The wine’s aromas of stone fruit and lime peel are immediately beguiling, making this one of our most widely sold wines. The ‘Montessora’, more mineral driven, has greater intensity and needs longer to show off its best. It will age easily for up to a decade or more.
