Gavi

Gavi was Italy's first white wine to gain international repute and is still considered one of the top-ranking Italian whites today. It is a white wine produced in the Alto Monferrato, in southern Piedmont, in the province of Alessandria. Wines are made exclusively from Cortese grapes, a variety which has a heritage dating back to the 1600s. Gavi DOCG wine can only be made with Cortese grapes cultivated in the town of Gavi and its surrounding villages.

A terroir driven wine, Gavi is noted for its bone-dry character and crisp, flinty and fresh acidity, coming from the mineral-rich soils of the area. The bouquet is particularly floral, offering delicate aromas reminiscent of white flowers with ntoes of lemon, green apples and hints of honesuckle.

In the last few years, wine makers have started to produce more structured and complex wines with very good results, proving that the Cortese grape grown in the Gavi area is suitable for aging in bottle or barrels and produce long lasting wines.
