Note from the wine-maker:
Gavius wine is obtained from a careful selection of Barbera and Pinot Nero grapes from the vineyards of Gabiano and Zoalengo.
The yield is limited to 60 q.li/ha through preventive thinning and a selection during the harvest that is carried out exclusively by hand.
The grapes are aged in the ancient underground cellars of the Castello di Gabiano, seeking the combination of the typical freshness of Barbera with the fruity aromas of Pinot Noir.
