Monchiero Carbone

Gavi di Gavi 2022

DOCG Gavi di Gavi, Piedmont, Italy

100% Cortese | 12.5% ABV


We are proud to offer this Italian white wine made from 100% Cortese grapes in the Piedmont region of Italy. As a grape variety, Gavi has a steeliness which can make it similar to some Chardonnays. Monchiero Carbone Gavi comes from the heart of the Gavi zone and displays pretty notes of orchard fruit, yellow plums and honeysuckle. A fantastic Gavi that brings forth another glass!

Guide to icons

On the nose, it has persistent notes of white flowers, lily, almond and grapefruit. On the palate the wine is elegant and smooth, with fresh and balanced components and a pleasant acidity.

Service: Serve chilled at 8-10°C.

Food Pairing: Excellent with cheese, fish, pasta in creamy sauce, poultry, shellfish and vegetarian dishes.

Francesco Monchiero is the winemaker for the vineyard.
“I am really lucky as an oenologist to have been born in a special region like Roero, because here I was able to experience both vinifications of red and white native grapes: Nebbiolo and Arneis! in Piedmont the great elegance of Nebbiolo-based red wines has always been recognized, while for the white Roero Arneis it was a completely new path to follow for me when I started my career: this has stimulated me a lot to improve my skills and discover all the secrets of white winemaking in a red wine world like Piemonte!”

The winery is located in Piedmont, specifically in the
geographical area of Roero, between Langhe and Monferrato, in the heart of the wine region, now recognized as UNESCO World Heritage. The landscape is unique and it features a succession of rolling hills until you reach the waters of the river Tanaro. Your eyes feast on a rapid sequence of landscapes, from the wild beauty of the hamlets to the jagged crests; from the 35 hectares of orderly vineyards to the chestnut and hazelnut trees, and orchards in bloom. The soil here is clayey-calcareous, generally light, and, in some parts, rich in sand.

250,000 years ago lay the bed of an ancient sea, which has now retracted, leaving stratifications of shell, sea urchin, and fish fossils behind. This is where our vines have their roots: this is the birthplace of our wines.

Cellaring: Ready to drink now.

Vinification: The flower wine, obtained after gentle pneumatic pressing, undergoes a process of fermentation using carefully selected yeasts. This fermentation takes place within steel tanks, maintaining a controlled temperature of approximately 15°C for a duration of 2 to 3 weeks.

Following the fermentation, the wine proceeds to an aging phase. It is aged in tanks for a period of 4 months, during which it undergoes meticulous lees stirring every 15 days, ensuring that the yeast remains in suspension. This process contributes to the wine's development and complexity.
