Description

Located close to the town of Gavi, in the frazione Zerbetta, at 260 metres above sea level on ancient Miocene sedimentary marne/tufo soils that are identical to those found in the Langhe to the north, Roberto & Aurora Sarotto’s 12ha Tenuta Manenti estate is perfectly placed to grow exquisite Cortese grapes for their fine Gavi del Comune di Gavi wines; the nutrient poor white soils focussing Cortese’s energy into the fruit, not the leaves.

A lime overtone, and an almost Riesling-like focus on the nose. On the palate, this light/medium bodied, dry wine boasts more dry extract than normal, giving white stone minerality that balances up the crunchy ripe lime, white fruit characters. Indeed it has the sort of sapidity you'd expect from the Loire.
