ETHICA WINES USA CATALOGUE

• Winery’s name recalls the story of the grandfather of the current generation of owners, who purchased this gorgeous estate and top growing site with otto soldi or eight shillings that he had managed to save. • Producer of elegant and well-balanced Gavi, certified organic from vintage 2019, representing the perfect expression of the indigenous Cortese grape • The 5000 plants per hectare are being cured according to biological methods which demands a cultivation without fertilizers and chemical synthesis. • Boutique winery, total production of 5000 cases. • 5 hectares (13 acres) of vineyards, organically certified that extend across an amphitheater vineyard with southwest exposure — one of the most coveted crus in the Gavi appellation. • Elevation: between 250 and 300 meters above sea level (820 – 1000 feet) • Climate: this hilly area of Southern Piemonte, close to the Ligurian border, benefits from the mild Mediterranean Sea influence which preserves the freshness and natural aromas and flavors of the grapes during vinification. • Soil: rich in clay and limestone.

The Ottosoldi farm is one of the top growing sites in the Gavi appellation. Just a small five-hectare parcel, this southern- facing amphitheater produces what many consider to be benchmark wines for the appellation. It’s even more remarkable to think that it was purchased for just otto soldi or eight schillings!
