Overview

Masseria dei Carmelitani. The cortese grapes grown on the hillsides in the comune of Gavi produce the wine known as Gavi, which can also utilize the “del comune di Gavi” subzone name. The grapes come from vineyards at 250-300 meters above sea level, on soils of a prevalent sandy rock formation: potent sandy rocks in alternate layers of sandstone; the colours of these soils vary from light brown to light cream.
