This Gavi DOCG Folli & Benato comes from 30 year old vines, trained using the Guyot method. Here they use thermo-controlled stainless steel tanks for fermentation which are set to 12 degrees. The fermentation takes place over a 20 day period. Once fermentation is complete, they leave the wine to rest on the lees to mature, for a further three months.
Folli & Benato are long-standing friends and colleagues for over 20 years. Italian born and bred, they met whilst living in England, working in the drinks trade. Together, they share a deep-rooted passion for wine and in particular the region of Piedmont, which after many trips together, is at the heart of this project. Folli & Benato source and bottle wines which truly reflect Piedmont’s many terroirs, whilst remaining excellent value for money.
