The Morgassi Superiore winery was created by Marino Piacitelli in 1993 and is today regarded as one of the top producers of the increasingly fashionable wine, Gavi. A small estate of 50 hectares, the winery is now managed by sisters Marina and Cecilia Piacitelli.
Unusually for the region, Morgassi only releases its whites after a year’s bottle ageing, meaning its wines are richer and more elegant than many of its rivals.
Translucent shades of straw yellow and greenish reflections which emphasise the wine’s clarity and brilliance. Very delicate while intense bouquet with elegant and pervasive flower notes which in time blend and give way to the sweetness of more intense white and citrus fruit aromas, rising to prominence after a few minutes. On the palate it starts off decisively, with sharpness and precision. Long almost bitter finish, typical of the Cortese grape, with its decisive imprint of freshness, witness of the wine’s potential for ageing.
Recommended for eating with fish and seafood generally, chicken, salads, antipasti, lighter risottos, creamy sauces, pesto…
