The 17-acre property of Picollo Ernesto is perched among the rolling hills that surround the town of Gavi. The climate is much more Mediterranean than in the north, benefiting from the constant maritime breezes, unique to Southern Piedmont. 
Picollo Ernesto’s vineyards sit near 260 meters above sea level in Rovereto di Gavi, the most prestigious area of the appellation. The nine hectares are planted exclusively with Cortese, a hearty, high acid white varietal that thrives in difficult soil, dry climate, and full sun exposure. Lorenzo Picollo founded the winery in 1945. It is now in the hands of his grandson, Gianlorenzo. Innovating along the way, he continues to carry the family’s legacy forward with great success.

Organic. Hand harvested - 100% Cortese old vines grown on south-facing slopes on soils of marl-clay and limestone at an altitude of 260 meters and fermented and aged exclusively in stainless steel. No malolactic fermentation. The hillside of Rovereto has always been considered the historic Cru of Gavi, in the municipality of Gavi. The climate is uniquely Alpine like the north, but also very much Mediterranean where it soaks up sunshine and maritime breezes from the Ligurian Sea.

Organic. A fine floral bouquet with hints of aromatic herbs and citrus fruits leads to an elegant and fresh palate with a savoury marine touch on the finish. Rovereto is a well-situated, historical sub-zone of Gavi. Animating and super-attractive white, this is refreshing and very versatile with food.
