Winemaker Notes

The Broglia Gavi La Meirana displays pale yellow color with green reflections. The bouquet on the nose is fine and delicate with lots of fruits, such as peach, melon and pink grapefruit, together with some hints of anise and flowers. Very fresh and balanced sip, with a long fruity finish.

Ideal as an aperitif; perfect with grilled fish, sea salt bream and fish soup.

Critical Acclaim

JS 91
James Suckling

A citrusy and almondy Gavi with more depth and structure than most. Some real power at the texturally complex finish. Better from 2019. It shows at least five years of aging potential beyond that.

WS 90
Wine Spectator
An extra dimension of peach and melon fruit graces this round, juicy white. Vibrant and tense, with the acidity driving the lingering aftertaste. Drink now.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
If you love the linear and profound mineral sensations you get with the unoaked Cortese grape, this is your wine. The 2016 Gavi di Gavi La Meirana is a dry and delineated white wine that sports pristine aromas of honeydew melon, Granny Smith apple and crushed flint or granite. The wine is crisp and streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, but it offers just enough acidity to keep the finish tangy and persistent. This is a beautifully refreshing drink.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Broglia vinifies its flagship bottling in stainless steel to preserve cortese’s floral scents and crisp pear and apple flavors. A touch of residual sugar accentuates the fruit, balanced by a pleasantly bitter almond note.

Broglia The Village of Gavi 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.

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.

Cortese’s territory was once part of the city-state of Genoa, and still the grape practically owes more allegiance to Liguria than the region that grows it: Piedmont.

Cortese was first recorded in the early 17th century at the far southeastern corner of Piedmont, in the province of Alessandria and today has no known relatives. It is most highly regarded here, in Gavi, and thus is often referred to simply as "Gavi." Cortese also grows well in the surrounding parts of Piedmont: Cortese dell’Alto Monferrato a few miles west of Gavi and just over a few hills to the east, in the Colli Tortonesi. But there Cortese doesn’t always achieve the ripeness, or get the winemaking proficiency that it does when grown on the limestone-rich soils of Gavi. While some renowned Barolo producers produce stellar Gavi, such as Michele Chiarlo and Pio Cesare, the region has no shortage of its own dedicated producers.

Because of its freshness and chalky minerality, this white wine commonly populates the fish restaurants’ wine lists of the Ligurian coast.
