Bruno Broglia Gavi di Gavi DOCG
Piemonte

This wine represents the best production of La Meirana. It is obtained from the grapes of old vineyards which are situated in an area called “Fasciola” and were planted in 1953 and 1955. The yield of these vineyards is, on average, from 30 to 40 quintals per hectar, which is far below those stipulated by the appellation. The name of the wine honors the estate’s founder, Bruno Broglia.
