Brand Il Poggio di Gavi

The story of “Il Poggio” is simply the transformation of a grandfather’s relaxing pastime into a young woman’s passion and lifework. The estate was purchased in 1919 as a family hunting reserve and passed to daughter Franca Odone, who at one time worked in Milan in the furniture business. With the help of oenologists, Gaspare Buscemi land was cleared for vines and wine production began in 1976. In 2003 the baton was passed to Franca’s daughter Francesca who, after some time working in real estate caught the family winemaking bug. Poggio extends her business savvy and deep commitment to family tradition to the winery, ensuring the wines remain focused and an homage to the land. In 2013 work was finished on a tiny B&B on the highest point of the property surrounding guests with the serenity of vines and forests. The hills of Rovereto in the heart of the Gavi DOCG are rich with sandy and clay soils that impart remarkable attributes to the ancient Cortese grape. Through the continued vineyard management by Buscemi, the 3 hectares of Guyot trained vines yield small quantities of high-quality wine.

We tasted and positively LOVED this 2022 Gavi di Rovereto made of 100% Cortese from 25-year-old vines, in clay and marl soils, planted at 330 meters. Fermentation with natural yeast takes place in stainless steel, resting on lees for 6 months. Light fining and rest in bottle 2 months before release. 

The hillside of Rovereto has always been considered the historic great cru of Gavi. Located in the municipality of Gavi, it extends over 148 acres. The name Rovereto means oak wood, a name derived from ancient local oak forests. The dark red clay soil is rich in iron and full of stones, imparting greater complexity and minerality than other soils of Gavi. The sea breezes from the Ligurian Sea and cool mountain winds from the Apennine Mountains create a microclimate ideal for growing Cortese grapes to optimal ripeness.

The scents of salty sea air wrap around ripe lemon and golden apples followed by a deliciously ripe, succulent, clean, crisp, minerally mouthful of pure Gavi flavor. Yummy. Classy. Excellent.
