The Morgassi Superiore winery was created by Marino Piacitelli in 1993 and is today regarded as one of the top producers of the increasingly fashionable wine, Gavi. A small estate of 50 hectares, the winery is now managed by sisters Marina and Cecilia Piacitelli. Following in their father’s footsteps, they have risen to the challenge of improving the winery using a combination of time-honoured tradition and innovative technology. All the grapes here are grown on calcareous clays and shale which contribute to the wine’s amazing minerality and freshness. Unusually for the region, Morgassi only releases its whites after a year’s bottle ageing, meaning its wines are richer and more elegant than many of its rivals.
Morgassi Superiore is a small estate of 50 hectares with a production of 150.000 bottles on 19 hectares of vineyards. Placed on steep hills all the vineyards are south/south west exposed, planted on an argillous calcareous land. The compact estate centres around a modern winery equipped with the most advanced technologies and specialised equippment: cooling storage rooms, pneumatic presses, insulated stainless steel tanks, bottling lines, storage and refining rooms. And to guarantee achievement of the best final quality, all wine-making and ageing processes are supervised in an advanced testing laboratory. Morgassi Superiore's mission is to obtain top quality wines under the supervision of a professional team of agronomist, oenologist and wine-maker using the most advanced agricultural techniques and precise manual intervention as necessary.
