Description

For three generations, their name has been synonymous with quality, experience, harmony. An atmosphere that is immediately perceived as you reach the farm. A family-run business whose success lies in these roots, with a fourth generation of extremely young future entrepreneurs who are ready to take up the challenges of the third millennium. The Azienda Agricola La Chiara rises a few kilometres from the centre of Gavi, on the hills of the Ligurian Preappennino mountain chain. It was founded by Ferdinando Bergaglio, born in 1912 in a family of farmers, and his son Roberto.

Grape %

Aroma

The scent is strong, fragrant and characteristic, with pleasant and elegant apricot and citrus notes on a very delicate mineral and rusty background.

Taste

Dry, lively, warm and full bodied. Warm, savoury, harmonious mineral and juicy taste.

Food Matching

Goes particularly well with vegetables and white meat hors d’oeuvres, seafood salads and grilled fish, first courses of pasta. Eminently drinkable, it reflects all the typical aspects of Gavi: a small, very special location. Ideal serving temperature: 10°C.

Vinification

The grapes are collected by hand, with great care, generally beginning in mid-September. Vinification: soft pressing of whole grapes by means of a latest generation “Bucher Inertys” press, which makes it possible to prevent oxidation and thereby preserve the full aroma of the grapes. Fermentation is started by inoculating the must with selected yeast strains and the process takes place at a temperature of about 18°C in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by a brief stay on fine lees stirred gently. Bottling is performed in the spring after the harvest.

Aging

Aging in bottles for 2-4 months.
