Oh Gavi, how we love you.
Gavi is one of my favourite wine styles because of its crisp taste, refreshing acidity and hint of minerality. This one from Alasia winery is a great example of the classic Gavi style.
The Cortese grapes are sourced from vineyards rich with limestone-clay soils. They are hand harvested typically in the last week of September. The wine undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel.
The resulting wine is full of appealing aromas of citrus fruit and white flower with a touch of white spice. The palate has more citrus characters with hints of orchard and stone fruits. Crisp, refreshing acidity balances underlying minerality.
