Tasting Notes: The sloping hills of Gavi, roughly 300 metres above sea level, provide the Cortese grape the perfect conditions to produce concentrated, rich wines. This Gavi di Gavi is a single vineyard wine with a floral, ripe pear & citrus fruit nose. The wine is aged on its lees to give texture and complexity. The palate is filled with stone fruit, ripe orange and citrus notes, and has a long crisp finish.
