About the Winery

Lorenzo Picollo founded the family winery in 1945, which is now in the hands of his grandson, Gianlorenzo. The land is predominantly in the historic Rovereto zone of Gavi, with vineyards over sixty years old, and now includes a small parcel of two hectares in Tassarolo. The winery itself has recently been modernized, but the processes remain traditional, with sparing intervention in the winemaking and no artificial pesticides or herbicides used in the vineyards, which are completely hand-harvested. With the intent of showcasing Cortese in its purest form, the wines are fermented and aged exclusively in stainless steel.

Picollo Ernesto is perched among the rolling hills that surround the town of Gavi. The climate here is much more Mediterranean than in the north, benefiting from the constant maritime breezes, unique to southern Piedmont. Picollo Ernestos vineyards sit near 260 meters above sea level in Rovereto di Gavi, the most prestigious area of the appellation.

The 16 hectares of vineyards are planted exclusively with Cortese, a hearty, high acid white varietal, perfectly suited for this area in northern Italy. Cortese thrives in difficult soil, with dry climates, and full sun exposure, which Rovereto amply provides. The vineyards are predominantly south-facing, and the soils have a higher concentration of clay than marl, which allows for year-round water conservation, even in the peak of summer.
