Principessa Gavi and L’Ardi
- The Principessa Gavia estate was established by the Mariani family in the early 1980s.
- L’Ardi is grown in the vineyards of the historical Dolcetto area, in the heart of the Acqui region.
- The term “ L’Ardì” (pronounced “Lar-DEE”) in the Piedmontese dialect means “bright and brave” and refers to a fun and adventurous person.
- The Principessa Gavia single vineyard is dedicated exclusively to the cultivation of the Cortese di Gavi grape, the sole white grape used to make this prized still wine.
- L’Ardi is fresh and fruity, and reflects the traditional style of Piedmont’s Dolcetto varietal. This wine is easy to drink and often called Italy’s Cru Beaujolais.
