Cinzia Bergaglio, Gavi di Tassarolo ‘La Fornace’ is 100% Cortese which fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature and then settled for a few months in vitrified concrete tanks. The wine is delicate and crisp, pure and clean. It is a superb expression of Cortese, flowery with hints of lemon, peach and apricot, sprinkle of wild herbs and ends on a dry, mineral finish.
Cinzia Bergaglio owns 7-ha of vineyards planted on calcareous and clayey soils, located in in Rovereto di Gavi and Tassarolo, in the middle of the area historically devoted to the production of Gavi di Gavi DOCG.
For years the Bergaglio familyhas been producing grapes which they sold in bulk, until 2002, when Cinzia decided to bottle her production.
Cinzia's vision is to farm following organic principles, the farm uses products with a low environmental impact, the vineyards are fertilized with green manure: among the rows, Cinzia grows a mix of herbs and various vegetables.
