    Winemaker Notes

    Villa Rosa Gavi di Gavi is fragrant and fruity with nuances of apples and melons on the nose. It is dry and medium-bodied, studded with white stone fruit and full of minerality which extends through to a crisp and clean finish. Best when consumed young.

    Blend: 100% Cortese

    Villa Rosa was created by the Opici family as a tribute to the late Rose Opici, a founder of the Opici Wine Group. Rose was partial to Piedmont’s indigenous grapes, particularly the white varietals, regularly enjoying a glass of Gavi with her favorite Italian fare or celebrating life with sweet bubbles from Asti.

    From Asti to Barolo, Opici collaborated with some of Piedmont’s finest growers and producers, each specialists in their respective appellations.

    In a sense, the Villa Rosa collection embodies Rose’s dynamic personality. Just as she was charismatic and full of life, these wines are fully-flavored, approachable, easy-going, and food-friendly selections.

    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.
