Tasting Notes

The region of Gavi is in Piemonte, n.w. Italy and lies due east of Barolo. Gavi is made from the Cortese grape which makes characterful crisp minerally white wines and is often described as the `Chablis of Italy`. The Bergaglio family who make this wine have been firmly rooted in the region since the 19th century and specialise in producing great Gavi from their own estate grown fruit. Salluvii is the flagship Gavi of Castellari Bergaglio. Always exceptionally well made, with crisp minerally flavours and hints of citrus and peach, it takes its name from the ancient inhabitants who used to live in the Gavi region. A benchmark Gavi that is amongst the very best value for money Gavi wines in the region.

Wine Making Notes

Hand harvesting with gentle pressing of the fruit and cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Followed by bottling the following spring.

About the Producer

Castellari Bergaglio’s history is that of a family who decided to dedicate their time to wine production in the late 19th century in Gavi. Situated between Piedmont and Liguria, Gavi is a land of extraordinary beauty set between forest and tended vineyards, with trails climbing over the hills, it is an area of tranquillity and peace. The winery’s objective has always been to make wines whose features are unmistakeably linked to the terroir and, to achieve this, attention is focused on the Cortese grape variety, emblematic of the Gavi production zone, building a strong and unique personality, a great white in a region of great wines.
