Gavi is actually the Cortese (pronounced cor-TAY-zay) grape, grown and produced around the town of Gavi, in the southern Piedmont region of Italy. Native to the area, Cortese grapes have a heritage dating back to the 1600s. The township of Gavi is the center of production for this white grape varietal so the Italians have dubbed all wine made using the Cortese grapes grown in the area after the town. When you find a wine with Gavi in the name, like this one, know that it was grown and produced in the Gavi region.
Aromas of tart green apples and lemons gave way to honeydew melons and beeswax.
Tart, with a broad mouthfeel, this wine had mineral notes combined with Meyer lemons, green apples, watermelon rind, and pineapple guavas. With good acidity and a clean finish that hinted at bananas… boy does it go down easy, so watch out or you’ll find your bottle empty sooner than expected.
Food pairing suggestions:
Cacio e pepe, pea shoot soup, crab salad sandwiches, spicy Mexican chicken soup.
