Donato Lanati, one of Italy’s best young consultants, began working with the owner of La Giustiniana, Enrico Tomalino, at the beginning of 1998. His indelible stamp of quality has become increasingly evident in recent years. The changes wrought in the winery seven years ago are now being matched with the improvements being made in the vineyard, where better grapes are giving purer, richer and better balanced wines. The estate covers 30 hectares in the heart of the commune of Rovereto in Gavi. Two single-vineyard wines are produced, both of which are unoaked so the character of the vineyards shines through. This 100% Cortese wine is 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.
