La Giustiniana, Gavi di Gavi ‘Lugarara’

Italy | 2022

£17.50 a bottle

Straw-yellow in colour with a greenish hue, this wine delights with aromas of white fruit, stone fruit and lime zest, which are immediately beguiling and are followed by a subtle yet persistent bouquet of green apples. The palate is well balanced with fresh acidity and good structure, and there are almond notes on the finish.

Gavi di Gavi, or Cortese di Gavi, is a renowned white wine DOCG appellation in Piedmont. Vineyards are planted over 110 hectares with southern exposure at an altitude of 300-500 metres above sea level. This wine is sourced from a single vineyard, Lugarara, which sits on grey marl with sandy topsoil.


The winery is located on an ancient property, passed down to the Giustiniana family in 1625 after one of their members successfully led Genoa’s troops to defend the Fort of Gavi.

The Giustiniana estate has been transformed since 1998 under the auspices of consultant Donato Lanati – along with winemaker Matteo Zerbo – with much improved resource and focus in both vineyards and winery. They own 40 has of vineyards in the commune Roverto in Gavi and make wines from two single vineyards.

Grape Variety

100% Cortese.

Grapes are handpicked and gently pressed before cool fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Unoaked.

Food Match

A good match with slightly fleshier fish like Sea Bream – even with a bold sauce or char grilled. Works nicely with pasta with a fennel, dill and aubergine sauce in a light béchamel sauce.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
