Description

Details

Gavi di Gavi Riserva La Raia, biodynamic Gavi, 100% Cortese, low in sulphites, rich and textured, very smooth, layered and yet with the cutting acidity of good Gavi. Made with low yielding old vines of Cortese grapes from the south-east facing vineyard La Madonnina, cultivated organically/biodynamically. The wine ferments naturally in steel and spends a year maturing on the fine lees before bottling with no filtration. Its fine and full taste makes it a perfect accompaniment to fish, hors d'oeuvres and Pecorino cheese. Rich and expressive, Gavi La Raia show the potential of this grape and wine to raise above the mundane and become something more special and profound. It is so easy to drink too.

La Raia is a demeter certified estate at the very heart of Gavi production. Georgio Rosso Cairo acquired the farm in 2003 and immediately began to work according to biodynamic principles so as to best create a balanced and healthy environment for the plants. Since, they have expanded to over 180 hectares of land, including woodland, fields, pastures and of course vineyard, all farmed in the same way. As well as this, they have invested in other projects on the estate, including a Waldorf School, retreat and artistic space. They are also shareholders in a number of companies which promote eco-friendly living. From the 62 hectares of vines, they produce 3 expressions of Cortese, all under the Gavi DOCG, and two of Barbera.
