Set up by Marino Piacitelli in 1993, Morgassi Superiore expressed in its flagship wine Gavi del comune di Gavi, produced from white Cortese grapes and certified with the Piedmontese Docg. Alongside their father in setting up and developing the Morgassi Superiore business, Marina and Cecilia Piacitelli have risen to the challenge of making the winery grow according to a combination of time- honoured tradition and innovative technology, in a tireless committment to quality. Morgassi Superiore is a small estate, 50 hectares, a production of 150.000 bottles on 19 hectares of vineyards. Placed on steep hills all the vineyards are south/south west exposed, planted on an argillous calcareous land. The compact estate centres around a modern winery equipped with the most advanced technologies and specialised equippment: cooling storage rooms, pneumatic presses, insulated stainless steel tanks, bottling lines, storage and refining rooms. And to guarantee achievement of the best final quality, all wine-making and ageing processes are supervised in an advanced testing laboratory. Morgassi Superiore’s mission is to obtain top quality wines under the supervision of a professional team of agronomist, oenologist, and wine maker using the most advanced agricoltural techniques and the most accuarate manual intervention.
Hand harvested in crates Grapes are chilled in a cold store for 12 hours overnight after harvested then destemmmed and soft pressed on the following morning. Fermented and refined in stainless steel vats. Refined in the bottle at least 4 months.
Very delicate while intense bouquet with elegant and pervasive flower notes which in time blend and give way to the sweetness of more intense white and citrus fruit aromas, rising to prominence after a few minutes. On the palate it starts off decisively, with sharpness an precision. Long almost bitter finish, typical of the Cortese grape, with its decisive imprint of freshness, witness of the wine’s potential for ageing.
