Tenuta Gaggino Rosato
WHY WE LOVE IT
- The estate’s vineyards cover two very most beautiful areas, Contrada Sant’Evasio, a historic and hilly area around Ovada, and in the village of Carpento, an excellent wine-growing area.
- This area is part of the famed wine region of Alto Monferrato.
Varietal Composition: 50% Dolcetto, 50% Barbera
Elaboration: The winery is equipped with modern equipment (pneumatic press, fermenters, thermo-conditioned tanks) with which to carry out vinifications that are perfectly respectful of the qualitative integrity of the grapes. Particular attention is then paid to the refinement and maturation phase of the wines, both in wooden containers (barriques and tonneaux) and in steel tanks; it is in fact in this phase that the wines are enriched from the taste-olfactory point of view and outline their elegant and complex profile.
Tasting Notes: This is a light rosé that has aromas that are delicate and pleasant. It tastes fresh, harmonious, and soft.
In 1924, Tommaso Gaggino began producing wine in the Ovadese region of northeastern Italy’s Piedmont region, south of Alessandria and about 35 miles north of Genoa. This area is part of the famed wine region of Alto Monferrato.
In 2016, Tommaso’s descendant Gabriele Gaggino and his wife, Tiziana Zago, began a business relationship with Silvia Montobbio and her family of ancient winemakers, who had been producing quality grapes since the early twentieth century. The result is Tenuta Gaggino, a collaboration based on experience and tradition and the pursuit of high-quality wine.
