Our first ever release from Gavi! A delicious dry white wine from Italy's Piedmont region.
Add to Cart
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.
