Lorenzo Picollo founded the winery in 1945. Today, Lorenzo’s son Ernesto takes care of the winemaking, and Ernesto’s son Gianlorenzo manages the vineyards. The vineyards lie mostly in Rovereto, Italy with four additional acres in Tassarolo, which is used for the production of their basic Gavi. Ernesto is very careful to give maximum expression to his vineyards and to the Cortese grape. The soil of the region is a mix of sand and clay. Their range of wines includes two Gavis the basic Gavi and Gavi del Comune di Gavi Rovereto. Fermentation is in stainless steel and malolactic is allowed, but on a limited basis.

Tasting notes
The wine is an intense yellow color and presents notes of peach and apricot.

Technical notes
Estate Cortese grapes were harvested from parcels located in Rovereto. The hand-picked fruit was gently pressed and fermented for three weeks in stainless steel with partial malolactic.
