Piero Broglia released his first wine from his father’s La Meirana estate in 1974, but there is a record of vines at the property that dates back to 971 AD, the very beginning of the story of Gavi. An MP with a law degree, Piero is a born researcher, having provided Italy’s first register of satellite-mapped vineyards, in Gavi, and carried out a study into clones of Cortese, the local vine. Vineyard Broglia currently own around 100 hectares of land, of which half is under vine. The vineyards are generally south-facing, on clay/marl soil. This special cuvée comes from the pick of the sites: a parcel of Cortese planted in 1953 and 1955. Yields are very low, giving a corresponding concentration, and the grapes are hand harvested into small boxes to preserve that quality. Winery The grapes were pressed straight after harvest and then fermented in stainless steel. The wine is unoaked and was bottled after some months’ maturation on lees.
