2020 Molinetto Gavi
Gavi is one of those classic Italian white wines that always delivers but this one by Molinetto goes the extra step and is precise on the palate. Beautiful lime citrus and a clean mineral drive that makes this a joy to drink. Estate fruit is hand harvested, fermented in stainless steel using wild yeasts and left to age shortly on the lees for extra depth.
The family farms some 15 acres of land in Tassarolo, in the heart of the Gavi zone, and cares for their vines and land sustainably. Soils are a mix of limestone and clay, with rare veins of “terra rossa” or iron-rich, red clay.
Grapes are harvested by hand. Depending on the wine, grapes are either pressed directly or briefly cold macerated; fermentation happens on indigenous yeasts. Wines are aged either in stainless steel tank or French oak barrel. Very little sulfites are added during the winemaking process.
