Production Notes

The grapes were hand picked and gently pressed upon arrival at the winery. A cool fermentation took place in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks at 16°C, which lasted two weeks. Unoaked, the wine was bottled in the spring following the harvest.

Producer Information

La Giustiniana comprises 110 hectares of vines in the heart of the commune of Rovereto in Gavi. Originally, this land was part of a Benedictine convent and was bought by the Giustiniani, a military family from the Republic of Genoa, in 1625. At that time, wine was already produced from the estate's original 40 hectares of vineyards. The Benedictine monks cultivated the first vines planted here. Today, the winery is managed by Magda Pedrini and production is focused on expressing Gavi di Gavi's potential from the estate's two single vineyards, ‘Lugarara’ and ‘Montessora’. These vineyards sit side by side at 300 metres above sea level yet have very different soils and subsequently showcase different expressions of the Cortese grape.

The ‘Lugarara’, planted on marl soils with sandy layers, is always the more open and forward of the two wines. Its aromas of stone fruit and lime peel are immediately beguiling.
