Vino Bianco "IVAG"

Italy
Piedmont
2021

100% Cortese. From biodynamically farmed estate vines on a limestone-rich hillside in the heart of Gavi. The bunches are harvested by hand, direct-pressed and fermented spontaneously with no sulfur in old barrels. The wine is aged for around a year in the same old barrels and bottled without fining, filtration or sulfur. It is bottled as a VIno Bianco. Pioneering Ulivi founder Stefano Bellotti was utterly committed to farming and making wine from his beautiful Gavi terroir as naturally as possible and thus tended to run afoul of the commercially oriented Gavi DOCG standards. Eventually, he stopped trying for DOCG classification and named the wine Gavi spelled backwards to make his point.
