The noted winemaker Robert Bergaglio, cellarmaster and winemaker has named this noble wine after his wife’s family name, Figini. For many years, Robert and his father worked for the world renowned La Scolca. In 1975 Robert and his father left La Scolca and started their own winery, in Gavi, beginning with only two hectares of vineyards. Today Robert and his family, wife Silvana, and children Simona and Dario, own 39 hectares of land, 21 of which are cultivated vineyards. Figini Gavi can be enjoyed on its own, or served with hors d’oeuvres, salads, lean white meats and shellfish. Serve chilled.

|Form of Planting
|Harvest and vinification
The harvest is totally by hand, from the picking of the grapes, placed in
small crates (to eliminate any loss of the precious juice) to the soft
pressing by the modern pneumatic presses. After pressing, the must is
separated immediately from the pulp and skins and allowed to ferment,
under temperature control, using special yeasts that have been bred from
year to year from the finest grape harvests, and then left to rest in
stainless steel tanks for 6 months. After several filtrations the wine is
bottled. Ready for release.
