Piemonte, Italy

Traveling to the northwest corner of Italy you’ll find the region of Piemonte. Here the climate ranges between moderate to continental and the area is noted for its foothills. These foothills provide different aspects and altitudes allowing for a variety of elegant, aromatic, and earthy wines to be grown. However, the primary grapes of Piemonte are the black varieties of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto and the white varieties of Cortese and Moscato (Muscat). Within Piemonte are many other designated smaller wine regions famous for their specific varietals including Barbaresco, Barolo, Asti, and Alba. 

La Ghibellina is an estate in the Gavi appellation of southern Piedmont, near the border with Liguria and less than an hour’s drive to Genoa on the coast. Cortese di Gavi, or Gavi di Gavi which the wine can be called when the grapes are grown in the commune of Gavi, was promoted to DOCG status in 1998. Wines labeled Cortese di Gavi or Gavi di Gavi must be made from 100% Cortese grapes. The Cortese grape, with it’s striking acidity and chalky mineral character, thrives in the limestone rich clay soils around Gavi.

The owners, Marina and Alberto Ghibellini, manage the farm and wine production with the help of the clearly talented oenologist Beppe Caviola and their agronomist, Alberto Abate. While Marina’s family has been in the Gavi area for generations, Marina and Alberto are newcomers to the winemaking scene in Gavi; they made their first vintage in 2000. Their total production is currently about 5,000 cases per year.
