Gavi DOCG del comune di Gavi "Poggio Basco"

“Poggio Basco” is a vineyard located in the township of Gavi at 400 m above sea level. With southern sun exposure, this 7-hectare vineyard is characterized by the strong difference in diurnal temperatures, which favors the development of its floral aromas. The soil is principally limestone and, in small amounts, clay. The wine is made from a fermentation process that takes place under controlled temperatures, and cold maceration with the must in contact with its skins, which helps develop its structure and complexity.
