Made from Cortese grapes (which date back to the 17th century), Gavi is a dry white wine awarded DOCG status in 1998.
Sourced from a top winery in the Langhe district of the Piedmont region in the Northwest of Italy, Lot 590 is made from select vineyards with exceptional sun exposure and soil, with the Cortese grapes hand-picked at the end of September and undergoing a soft press and fermentation at 15-16°C for ten days. Made in a style of production that has hardly changed since 1876, this wine is an Italian classic and represents a terrific value at $15.
Nice change of pace
Nice to have a wine from Italy among Cam's collection. I agree that this is light and crisp, also different from most of the other grapes available here. A nice change of pace.
Crisp, tart, dry
Seemed pretty tight for my tastes, and only had one bottle so made me wished I had kept it a bit longer. Crisp, dry, and tart - and a unique variety compared to your typical wines made it for a nice change of pace.
Tart, citrusy, minerality
Perhaps a bit too tight to drink right now. Very tart and citrusy, minerality evident so should go well with food. I'll keep my second bottle until next winter to try! Always fun to try new grapes.
Crisp , Lite, Dry and Lovely
This is my first try of a Gavi and I would highly recommend getting a case before it's gone; pairs well with most foods.
This is one of my favorite wines I have received in my quarterly shipments. Light and refreshing. Highly recommend!
Nice and refreshing. Perfumed and slightly acidic. I agree on the crisp finish.
Reordered twice already
We really enjoy this wine. The balance between fruit and minerality is perfect.
Memories of Italy.
Light aroma and refreshing summer wine.
Light aroma and refreshing summer wine. Good value. Reminds me of Pinot Gris. Dry with crisp finish.
Nice to have this variety
It's great to have a different grape available, and one that differentiates itself from chard, SB, etc. Nice and light, crisp. Needs to go with a mild dish, like flounder with a light sauce.
