La Giustiniana Lugarara Gavi di Gavi DOCG 

Producer

This estate covers 110 hectares in the heart of the commune of Rovereto in Gavi. Originally, this land was part of a Benedictine convent which was bought by the Giustiniani, a military family from the Republic of Genoa, in 1625. Wine was already produced from the then 40 hectares of vineyards, since the Benedictine monks cultivated the first vines planted here. Today, the winery is managed by Magda Pedrini and the production is focussed on showing the potential of Gavi di Gavi from the two single vineyards of the estate: Lugarara and Montessora. The two vineyards sit side by side at 300 metres above sea level, but they have very different soils and showcase two very different expressions of the Cortese grape.

The ‘Lugarara’ has marl soils with sandy layers and is always the more open and forward of the two wines. The wine’s aromas of stone fruit and lime peel are immediately beguiling, making this one of our most popular wines. The ‘Montessora’, with its alluvial and clay soils, is more mineral, has greater intensity and needs longer to show off its best. It will age easily for up to a decade or more.

Vinification: 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.
