The Estate

Tenuta del Melo extends for 20 hectares with young and well exposed Cortese and Barbera vines, cultivated according to the biodynamic methods. The plants sink their roots in the marly and mineral soil, typical of this area. The vine rows are turfed in order to deeply oxygenate the roots and there is no use of chemicals neither in the vineyards nor in the wine cellar.

The fertility of the soil is stimulated through preparations obtained with fermented manure, minerals and herbs able to increase the nutrition and quality of the grapes, in harmony with the rhythms and cycles of nature.

The cure of the vines and the extreme attention of all the winemaking processes in the cellar return an extremely fine Gavi D.O.C.G. and a Piemonte D.O.C. Barbera of extraordinary immediacy.

The project

 

Tenuta del Melo is located in the heart of Gavi’s hills.
Together with LA RAIA in Novi Ligure and TENUTA CUCCO in Serralunga d’Alba, it is owned by the Rossi Cairo family that for years has promoted a project of sustainable and quality agriculture, with the progressive introduction of organic and biodynamic cultivation methods.
