The Cortese grapes for this wine come from Bosio Estate vineyards located in Gavi and Tassarolo villages, at 100-to-200 ft. above sea level (in the southeastern part of Piedmont, close to the city of Genoa and the sea). The average age of the vines is 20 years, and they are grown on southeast and southwest facings in sandy soil. After harvesting, the grapes spend 24 hours at low temperature in contact with skin to increase aroma complexity, then they are pressed and the must is fermented in temperature controlled steel tanks. The wine spends three months in contact with its own yeasts after the fermentation. and then another three months in the bottle before shipping.
The nose and palate on this very pale white wine show clean and crisp floral overtones and captivating hints of pineapple, apricot and peach.
