At the extreme limits of the region Piemonte, famous land for its great red wines, grows one of the best Italian white wine: Gavi. Thank to the success earned in the past decades it was given the highest rank on the qualitative pyramid for the Italian legislation: the appellation DOCG. The elegance and class, in the nose and on the palate, are the distinctive features of this wine.
Vineyard: The soil is made of thick and solid sandstones, named Serravalle sandstones. The ground has a very light colour. The altitude (300 mt. asl), woods and sea breezes contribute to create a microclimate with strong temperature ranges, which favour the development and the fineness of the aromas.
Tasting: In the glass our Gavi di Gavi shows a clear straw yellow colour. It has a fine bouquet, it is pleasantly fresh, with scents of citrus fruits, white flowers and fruit. On the palate it is delicate, dry, with a very good balance between acidity and minerality. It has a very good structure and a good persistence with a fine bitter almond aftertaste.
Service temperature: 8°-10° (46°F-50°F)
Food pairing: Perfect as aperitif, it matches very good with fresh starters. Highly recommended with fish specialities, like spaghetti with sea food, sea-bass and sea bream in salt crust.
