Winemaker Notes

Broglia Gavi La Meirana is a pale straw yellow with green highlights. This wine offers a fine and delicate nose with fruity notes of peach, melon and pink grapefruit, as well as hints of anise and flowers. On the palate, it is very balanced, with a long fruity finish.

Critical Acclaim

JS 91
James Suckling
Very mineral base to this with lavender, coconut, fresh herbs and just tinges of melon and citrus fruit. Full-bodied with a dense, almost thick, minerally texture and a long, saline finish.

Broglia The Villa Winery Image
Now a third generation family business, Broglia safeguards its oldest vineyards, which date back to the 1950s, thanks to the unique calcareous marl soil that allows the vines to have an ­extended lifespan. However, in the winery, which was renovated in 2000, the best of modern ­winemaking techniques are used to continue and elevate the tradition of Gavi. Their efforts have been rewarded with recognition as one of the top Gavi producers on the international stage, receiving industries titles such as Tre Bicchieri, as well as, a place as some of the most exclusive tables, such as the Vatican and G8 summits.

Piedmont, Italy

Among Piedmont’s most historical and respected white wine producing zones, Gavi—also known as Gavi di Gavi and Cortese di Gavi—comes from Piedmont's southeast, in the province of Alessandria. Gavi is the main town of the area; Cortese is the grape. Cortese for Gavi is grown in any of 11 communes in the area where the soils are abundant in chalky, white, limestone-rich clay. The best Gavi from these locations are delicately floral, with stone fruit and citrus characters and a crisp, mineral-laden finish.

While typically made in a fresh and unoaked style, by law Gavi can come in many forms: frizzante, spumante, metodo classico and méthode ancestrale. But most producers maintain a conventional winemaking practice of temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel and make fresh, still whites. However, there are several barrique-aged examples, which can be interesting. The biodynamic wines of Gavi, fermented with ambient yeasts can be the most expressive.

First recorded in the early 17th century in the province of Alessandria in SE Piedmont, Cortese today is most highly regarded from Gavi where soils are limestone-rich. It also grows well in the surrounding zones, namely Monferrato and Colli Tortonesi. Somm Secret—Because of its freshness and chalky minerality, this white wine commonly populates the fish restaurants’ wine lists of the Ligurian coast so practically owes more allegiance to this neighboring region than its home.
