The La Zerba Estate
This is a family run winery located in the village of Tassarolo, in the Piemonte region.

The
La Zerba Vineyard
The estate spreads over 10 hectares (24.7 acres). The vineyard is located 1,476 feet above sea level. This high elevation leads to crisp, white wines that have zesty, mineral and lively characteristics. Historically, the wines of Tassarolo have lead the DOC of Gavi as the best in the region, not Gavi di Gavi, which is all about marketing. The estate is 8.5 hectares (21 acres) and produces classic Gavi. Furthermore, in top years a special cru is produced called Terra Rossa, Gavi. The DOC Gavi was founded in 1974 and consists of these villages: Gavi, Tassarolo, Novi Ligure, Pasturana, Capriatta D’Orba, Serravalle Scrivia, San Cristo Toro, Parodi, Bosio, and Carosio. The grape of Gavi is Cortese.

Zerba Gavi 2015

Zerba Gavi is made from 100% Cortese.


Cryomaceration. The skins remain in contact with the must for 36 hours and a constant temperature of 6 degrees. The must is then racked and is allowed to ferment in temperature controlled stainless steel. No malolactic fermentation.
The wine shows a pale yellow color, a delicate and quite elegant bouquet with a pleasing floral scent mingled with honeydew melon. Round on the palate, a nice body and a good balance between acidity and the ripe fruits. The finish is long, clean and persistent. Chilled, it is a nice aperitif and a perfect companion to pastas, cream sauces, white meats, fish and light fried food

Convento Oreja Ribera del Duero Crianza 2014

Bright cherry color. On the nose you will find plenty of fruit aromas, well balanced as well as some reminiscences of spices that are appreciable. The oak presence gives elegant hints of black chocolate and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is very smooth and well balanced with the right amount of acidity. Fresh, long lasting and elegant. 

The wine went through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged 12 Months in French Oak barrels.  Before bottling, the wine was slightly filtered.
