Producer
The Bongiovanni farmstead (“cascina” in Italian; pronounced ka-shee´-nah) dates back to the early 1950s, when it was purchased by Giovanni Bongiovanni, a grass-roots man with a profound instinct for soil potential. Giovanni planted a Nebbiolo vineyard where there had been nothing but untamed woodland: he struck gold, yet never lived to bottle his own wine. The estate was left to his daughter Olga and it grew to cover premier hillside vineyards of Langhe. Grapes were all indigenous varieties with one noble “foreigner”, Cabernet Sauvignon. The latter - and a good number of other innovations - were due to Olga’s young nephew and winemaker, Davide Mozzone. Davide Mozzone was born at Castiglione Falletto and grew up on his maternal grandfather’s farm. Growing up Davide lived and breathed the family tradition, taking his first steps among the vineyards and inevitably choosing to become a winemaker. Davide’s first steps as winemaker was to cut down on quantity to enhance the soil’s potential and maximize quality resulting in modern red wines that combine character, concentration and consumer-friendly versatility. Davide’s modern style never contradicts the Langhe heritage, as we can see from the labels themselves. “My wine labels speak of our roots, our history: I have chosen to maintain my grandfather’s surname on Bongiovanni bottles rather than replace it with my own, Mozzone, in homage to his vision and dedication, and as a sign of continuity.” Bongiovanni now covers seven hectares (17.3 acres) under vine, and the range comprises one intriguing, fragrant native white: Arneis. Davide is flanked by his wife Marina and by top agronomist Gian Piero Romana, as attentive to every detail in the vineyard as the young owner himself. Total yearly production averages 30-35,000 bottles, and the Bongiovanni philosophy aims at minimizing outside intervention and maximizing character.
