Castellari BergaglioAll products from this vendor
Castellari Bergaglio was created by a family that decided to take up winemaking at the end of the 19th century. The challenge of the winery from the very beginning was to produce wines that show the qualities of terroir in taste. To achieve this, the Cortese grape variety was used, which can be considered a symbol of the Gavi wine region.

Cortese's strong feature is freshness. Delicate and clean aromas are dominated by white flowers, citrus notes, acacia, honey, sweet almonds, peach and white fruits. The wine is elegant, harmonious, with a steel-like minerality on the palate and a low alcohol level.
Gavi or Cortese di Gavi DOCG are the most fashionable and prestigious white wines of Italy. They are made from an old grape variety called Cortese. Gavi wine is dry, fresh, with a hint of cream notes. The wine has a light straw color in the glass with and emerald shimmer. Their flavor has incorporated all the freshness of fruit - peach, lemon, banana and green apple. These wines are especially noteworthy for their elegance, sophistication and versatility which provides them worldwide success.
Translated from Italian Piemonte means ''the foot of the mountain" which is evident by the location of the region - it rests near the Alps which protect the region from cold winds. Nebbiolo is the king of grapes here - this exceptional variety is ideal for the production of wines with a high potential for aging like, for example, the world-famous fruity and balanced Barolo and Barbaresco.
