“This is a vibrant and fresh white wine whose edgy fruitiness is laced with bracing acidity as well as suggestions of chalky minerality. Light floral notes in the aroma tease the senses at the beginning and a long finish wraps up the tasting experience nicely. M.T.”

Product Description:

"Made with 100% estate-owned Cortese grapes, this Gavi is a wine that reflects its terroir with a crisp, flinty and fresh acidity, coming from the mineral-rich soils of the area. Pale yellow in color, this Gavi offers intense floral notes on the nose with hints of melon and citrus. It is a well-balanced wine, distinctly fruit driven with underlying hints of almonds on the finish.

It is ideal as an aperitif or when served with savory canapes and hors d’oeuvres. Ideal for serving with delicate fish-based first courses or with the typical ‘tajarin al tartufo’, a pasta dish topped with truffles, butter and parmesan cheese.

Gavi is considered Piedmont’s white jewel in the crown and Italy’s first white wine to gain international repute." - Importer
