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.
I knew nothing about this wine. Always a bit careful about one that I don't know. This was a wonderful surprise. I loved it. Want to get more.
Nice, dry white wine
A nice change of pace from my other white wines, but not an absolute favorite that I'd order again - nice fruit but a little one-dimensional through the final taste.
A real surprise. A dry white from northern Italy, it offers good fruit - honeydew and apple balancing acidity. A nice alternative to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio.
Have always enjoyed white wines from this part of Italy, this was no exception!
