Gorrina is a centenary vineyard and has the distinction of being one of the few that is still un-grafted, ie with original trees, not grafted onto American roots. A true rarity, not only in Italy but also in Europe.
It survived the terrible epidemic of phylloxera, one of the worst natural disasters in the history of agriculture.
Phylloxera was a deadly parasite that fed the roots of the vines and, once a vineyard was attacked, it was destroyed completely.
Phylloxera, from America, struck violently in the late nineteenth century throughout Europe
The screws on roots are the last witnesses of a bygone era. They are the last vestiges of a tradition that endures to modern times.
The Gorrina vineyard, with its historical species, is still in production today.
The grapes are harvested in late September, strictly by hand, choosing only the best grapes.
Gavi DOCG Gorrina is an elegant structured “Cru”, in a very limited production, the vital expression of the treasures that the time can give us.
In the glass, it is an intense yellow colour.
Brief contact with the air allows it to develop all its scents in a harmony of flowers and ripe fruit.
Notes of vanilla, which reveal the passage in barriques, are perceptible without overwhelming the delicate primary aromas.
In the mouth, it surprises by its richness. A symphony of well-balanced flavours with a fresh note which makes it even more enjoyable. Persistence is long
