The Gavi di Gavi DOCG was first produced in 1974 and is closely tied with the historic identity of Villa Sparina. Made from 100% Cortese, from vines averaging over 30 years old, the wine displays a unique expression the terroir in its purity and focus. With honeysuckle and yellow pears on the nose and a steely minerality on the palate, it is easily comparable to a Chablis (on a vespa).

The Villa Sparina family estate can be found in Monterotondo, in the Gavi DOCG district of Piedmont. Overseen by the Moccagatta family since the 1970s, Villa Sparina specialise in the production of local grape varieties Cortese and Barbera with over 70% of their 100 hectares dedicated to these grapes. The striking amphora-shaped bottle was inspired by an ancient Roman relic excavated from the property during a period of restoration. It has become a symbol for the estate: “elegant but strong, modern but with an ancient touch”.

"Expect nothing less than class and precision from Villa Sparina. Purity and focus here with a light fresh touch. However the concentration also shines through in the long finish. There is a beautiful balance of soft stone fruit and yellow citrus. A floral essence provides further complexity. Perfect aperitif or pair with shellfish and crustacea."
Luke, Wine Guru

Incredibly versatile, this wine can be sipped as an aperitif or enjoyed with a zesty bowl of spring vegetable risotto (among other fresh and fun dishes).

What the critics say:

91/100James Suckling

"A tangy and fresh Gavi full of sliced apples, lemon zest and stones. Medium-bodied and textured on the palate with fresh, vibrant acidity and a pure, pithy finish. Drink now."

Villa Sparina

This Monterotondo-based producer occupies one of Gavi's finest terroirs and does absolutely incredible things with Cortese and Barbera. These wines always catch people by surprise at tastings (alongside the fabulous Amphorae-shaped bottle...), and as James Suckling declares, if you "don't take Gavi seriously", you "obviously haven't tasted the wines of Villa Sparina"!
