Lorenzo Picollo founded the winery in 1945. Today, Lorenzo’s son Ernesto takes care of the winemaking, and Ernesto’s son Gianlorenzo manages the vineyards. The vineyards lie mostly in Rovereto, with 4 additional acres in Tassarolo, which is used for the production of their basic Gavi. The soil of the region is a mix of sand and clay. Their range of wines includes three Gavi – the basic Gavi, Gavi del Comune di Gavi and the single vineyard Rughe, where the vines are over 50 years of age. In the winery, Ernesto is very careful to give maximum expression to his vineyards and to the Cortese grape. Fermentation is stainless steel and malolactic is allowed, but only on a partial basis. The Rughe sees some barrel fermentation, usually only 20 percent.
