La Mesma Gavi Di Gavi Etichetta Gialla 2013 (6-Pack)
**Sold as a 6-Pack**
The hand picked grapes thrive on the family owned hillsides, well exposed to the sun and coastal breezes. Harvest is immediately followed by soft pressing and “in bianco” vinification at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats. This wine has an alluring straw-yellow colour, fruity scents (apricot) with hints of citrus and meadow flowers; a fresh, harmonious taste with a pleasantly fruity background.
La Mesma is a family business, meticulously run by the three Rosina sisters: Paola, Francesca and Anna. Though coming from different professional backgrounds, they all share the same passion for Gavi. The vineyard’s unique characteristics, as well as those of the local terrain, endow La Mesma Gavi with a myriad of distinctive, singular qualities. Hand-picking and careful selection ensure that only the best grapes are used and the same passionate care pervades every step of production, from harvest to soft pressing, to vinification at controlled temperatures in stainless steel vats.
At La Mesma they believe that a great wine comes from great fruit, and that great fruit can be obtained with gentle, hands-on farming practices. They never use weed-killers or chemical fertilizers, as they want the vines to live a long, healthy life, therefore the soft pruning technique, and controlled grass treatments are used. The Gavi area is rich in biodiversity, with woods surrounding the vineyards and lots of insects and wild animals free to roam: healthy vines in a healthy environment.
