La Mesma is the rising star of the Gavi.
Owned and operated by the Rosina sisters, Paola, Francesca and Anna, what started simply as a desire for a country house on the hillside hamlet of Tassarolo has, over the last two decades, turned into one of Gavi’s most exciting addresses.
The vineyards lay across two key zones. The first being the clay-dominant soils around the cellar in Tassarolo, the second is the poor, calcareous soils of the idyllic cru of Monterotondo.
The vines are perched high at 300masl, which has become essential to contend with the increasingly sun-scorched summers.
Farming is organic, with biodiversity encouraged in a place already abounding in forest life.
Separate cuvées are made from particular soils and the resulting wines speak unequivocally of where the vines burrow their feet.
The wines made from the white soils of Monterotondo are particularly assertive in their brisk acidity and show incredible clarity and focus.
This is Gavi that finds another gear of complexity, power and dimension!
