Picollo Ernesto Gavi del Comune di Gavi Rovereto
Lorenzo Picollo founded the winery in 1945. Today, Lorenzo’s son Ernesto takes care of the winemaking, and Ernesto’s son Gianlorenzo manages the vineyards. The vineyards lie mostly in Rovereto, with four additional acres in Tassarolo, which is used for the production of their basic Gavi. The soil of the region is a mix of sand and clay. Their range of wines includes two Gavis the basic Gavi and Gavi del Comune di Gavi Rovereto. Ernesto is very careful to give maximum expression to his vineyards and to the Cortese grape. Fermentation is in stainless steel and malolactic is allowed, but on a limited basis.
