Castello di Tassarolo
The Spinolas, one of Europe’s oldest families, are traceable to the 9th century. Massimiliana Spinola took over the estate (and castle!) on the death of her father and immediately applied bio-dynamic methods.
Vineyard size 20 hectares. Organic since 2009.

Gavi Frizzante ‘Sparkling Spinola’ DOC
Sparkling Gavi is not widely available but this delicious example from the historic Castello di Tassarolo suggests that it deserves a wider audience. It’s a light and refreshing ‘Frizzante’ with a fruity, green apple nose and matching flavours on the palate. Easy-drinking and versatile.
