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.
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.
First time trying Gavi. Nice white with a nice dry, crisp finish.
Relaxed and substantive
Not my favorite white, but still, grassiness and dry; quick to leave the palate...it would be amazing with rich white sauce-based dishes.
Lighter than air
The faintest of aromas. Minerals and acid in the mouth. I think this wine would disappear completely if you paired it with food. Suitable for the deck in 90F+ weather.
This was a pleasant surprise. Delicious flavor
Great for the Hot Texas Summer
Never had this wine before and found myself liking the lightness and the fruit tastes that came thru. I am definitely ordering more next spring.
First time trying Gavi. While I’m familiar with the region, not for its whites. Very nice white with fruity pear maybe? with a nice dry, crisp finish. Liked it enough to try a few more bottles and explore its complete palette.
I moved to a warmer climate and have been drinking more white wines. I never had or heard of Gavi, so I thought I would give it a try. It was light and refreshing, but a little too light for me. I will save the other bottle and let it age to see how it develops.
Good for Summer
Very light with a little fruit up front. Like it better on right off the ice.
