La Mesma Gavi Di Gavi Riserva 2013 (6-Pack)
**Sold as a 6-Pack**
The grapes for this Gavi Riserva are selected and hand picked in a fifty years old vineyard, guarded by a five century old monumental evergreen oak tree. After an extremely soft pressing, fermentation takes place in cement vats at controlled temperature. The wine then rests for six months in vat, and for another six months in bottle. Bright, straw yellow in colour, the Riserva is rich, complex and persistent, yet fresh and elegant. It can age beautifully.
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.
