Winemaker Notes

Pale straw yellow with green reflections. Rich and intense bouquet on the nose, with complex fragrances of wildflowers and honey. Dry and elegant sip, with an harmonious lingering finish.

Pair with shrimp, chicken and pasta dishes.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 90
James Suckling
Lemon and honey to the sliced-papaya and pineapple character. Medium body. Creamy texture. Some flint and gun-metal undertones.
D 90
Decanter
These hand-harvested 30-year-old vines have produced an intense and richly textured white that is ideal for drinking on its own as well as with food. Pink grapefruit outlines the baked apple, almond and spice flavours, with a lovely wave of acidity following closely behind.

Broglia The Villa Winery Image
Now a third generation family business, Broglia safeguards its oldest vineyards, which date back to the 1950s, thanks to the unique calcareous marl soil that allows the vines to have an ­extended lifespan. However, in the winery, which was renovated in 2000, the best of modern ­winemaking techniques are used to continue and elevate the tradition of Gavi. Their efforts have been rewarded with recognition as one of the top Gavi producers on the international stage, receiving industries titles such as Tre Bicchieri, as well as, a place as some of the most exclusive tables, such as the Vatican and G8 summits.

Gavi Wine

Piedmont, Italy

Among Piedmont’s most historical and respected white wine producing zones, Gavi—also known as Gavi di Gavi and Cortese di Gavi—comes from Piedmont's southeast, in the province of Alessandria. Gavi is the main town of the area; Cortese is the grape. Cortese for Gavi is grown in any of 11 communes in the area where the soils are abundant in chalky, white, limestone-rich clay. The best Gavi from these locations are delicately floral, with stone fruit and citrus characters and a crisp, mineral-laden finish.

While typically made in a fresh and unoaked style, by law Gavi can come in many forms: frizzante, spumante, metodo classico and méthode ancestrale. But most producers maintain a conventional winemaking practice of temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel and make fresh, still whites. However, there are several barrique-aged examples, which can be interesting. The biodynamic wines of Gavi, fermented with ambient yeasts can be the most expressive.

First recorded in the early 17th century in the province of Alessandria in SE Piedmont, Cortese today is most highly regarded from Gavi where soils are limestone-rich. It also grows well in the surrounding zones, namely Monferrato and Colli Tortonesi. Somm Secret—Because of its freshness and chalky minerality, this white wine commonly populates the fish restaurants’ wine lists of the Ligurian coast so practically owes more allegiance to this neighboring region than its home.
