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
It is a straw color with aromas of summer stone fruits and white flowers and offers a fresh, clean and spicy finish.

Wine maker notes
100% Cortese di Gavi grapes. The fruit comes from a new vineyard in the hills of Tassarolo. The grapes are softly pressed in a new pneumatic Willmes press. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and lasts around three weeks. There is no malolactic fermentation. Once settled the wine is bottled and released after an additional period of rest in the bottle.

Technical notes
The Cortese grapes come from a vineyard in Tassarolo planted on marly and clay soils. The wine fermented for three weeks in stainless steel.
