Villa Sparina was acquired by the Moccagatta family in the late 1970s - long before anyone could imagine how popular Italian white wine would become in the decades to follow.
Villa Sparina’s vineyards stretch over 70 hectares in northern Gavi appellation where the clay marl soils alternate with diluvial and gravelly soils, at altitudes between 250-300 metres above sea level. The vineyards benefit from the maritime influence of the Mediterranean Sea. The growing conditions are ideal for the making richly flavoured white wines with immense aging potential.
The winery grows Cortese in a variety of styles, including a lighter-style expression of Cortese blend from vineyards approximately 30 years in age; the richer, age-worthy Gavi Monterotondo from 40-year-old vines; and a sparkling wine aged on lees for 30 months.
Villa Sparina is renowned for its distinctive bottle shape, which is inspired by an old bottle that was discovered in the estate’s historic cellar.
