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 709 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 this price.
Bright and happy
Had never tried this varietal before and was pleasantly surprised. It was crisp and bright with a good balance of earthy mineral and almond note. Nice change up from the usual sauvignon blanc and pino grigio. Paired really well with the cold orzo dish we had with it.
I need CH to get more wines from Italy. My fav white wine from CH to date is this Gavi.
If you appreciate steely, minerally, sharp, Italian wines this is it....have had many bottles and they were all good
New to me and a memorable one
A new variety for me and definitely glad I could be turned onto it by CH. Earthy and fruity, and quite crisp.
Know nothing about Gavi, but I trust Cam implicitly and he's dug this one out of Italy and I hope to get more.
Wonderful Alternative White
I've always found Gavi to be a nice alternative to more common whites. The 2018 Gavi delivers in almost very way - great straw color, earthy nose, and good fruit flavor and finish. Hoping Cam continues to offer this wine in future years.
Nicely crisp and acidic
This was a new wine for me. I found the crispness, with lime and apple very pronounced, to be remarkable. It was clean and substantially acidic. I had a shrimp salad with it, and the Cortese offered a nice contrasting but complementary aspect to the food.
Love it! Need more Gavi!
I wish CH could source more Gavi and white wines from Italy. Loved this!!!
Not a Gavi lover, a little too tart for me.
First time trying a Gavi and we were blown away. I have already order more bottles. I find this goes so well with the Sautés shrimp dinner with rice dinner I make.
