Additional Information on Conti Speroni Gavi Di Gavi 2014

Winery: Conti Speroni

Varietal: Cortese

The Cortese grape varietal has been cultivated and used in the production of fine white wines in and around southern Piedmont, Italy, for at least half a century. The wine made from the Cortese grape has been consistently popular in the region it is most commonly produced in for a very long time, and is growing in popularity worldwide at the moment due to increased interests in fine and unique Italian produce. The Cortese grape produces white wines which are highly delicate, their moderate acidity resulting in medium bodied wines full of aromatic and tart flavors of green fruits such as lime and greengage. Their crisp and fresh character means that these wines are considered absolutely ideal for matching with seafood.

Region: Piedmont

The beautiful region of Piedmont in the north west of Italy is responsible for producing many of Europe's finest red wines. Famous appellations such as Barolo and Barbaresco are the envy of wine-makers all over the world, and attract plenty of tourism as a result of their traditional techniques and the stunning setting they lie in. The region has a similar summer climate to nearby French regions such as Bordeaux, but the rest of their year is considerably colder, and far drier as a result of the rain shadow cast by the Alps. The wineries which cover much of Piedmont have, over many generations, mastered how to make the most of the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive here, and nowadays are beginning to experimenting with many imported varietals to increase the region's range and meet international demand.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
