Wine Details

Brilliant in the glass with a light straw color and hint of green around the edge, this wine exudes its charisma with a ripe bouquet of spring blossoms and citrus fruit that takes on richer peachy aromas as it opens. 2016 was a terrific healthy vintage in Piedmont, so the wine is classically styled and soft on the palate with just the right amount of chalky minerality to carry the fruit. A harmonious and pleasant wine that will benefit from seeing a little air before enjoying now, but will also develop nicely in the cellar over the next few years.

Cam Confidential

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.

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.

Very light with a little fruit up front. Like it better on right off the ice.

First time trying a Gavi--Really enjoyed the wine with grilled fish. Improved after letting it breathe a bit, but delicious out of the bottle as well!

My first Gavi

I never had Gavi before, even when I visited Italy last summer. I know, I'm the worst! But this one opened my taste buds for sure! I loved it so much that I ordered another!

I really enjoyed this wine - smooth and flavorful, great for a summer evening! After reading other reviews, I will order some to hold and 'age' to see how it develops!

Cortese grapes were not part of my wine vocabulary, and I'm not quite sold on them yet. Or maybe it's just the lot. This wine just drinks a little thin, which doesn't bother me on a picnic, particularly if the bottle has been very well chilled in a cooler full of ice and water. But I am going to wait a year or so before drinking my remaining bottles, as it sounds like this wine will develop more character over time.
