Gavi – Terre da Vino

blog 101

I’ve been to Piemonte (Piedmont) a few times and first tried Gavi di Gavi 20 years ago (in a restaurant in London). I love Gavi and the Cortese grape and I’m pleased and surprised that a supermarket like Sainsburys can offer 4 different bottles ranging from £7.50 to £15.50. Clearly I’m not the only fan of this variety!

Tasting notes: Citrus and white peach notes. Good acidity and texture. Has the ‘DOCG’ ‘guarantee’ of quality, (which offers little real guarantee at all – but looks good). This is however good wine, well priced and competes well with the other Gavis I’ve reviewed.  

Region of Origin – Piemonte
Wine Colour – White
Price – £6.75
Where do I get it from? – Sainsburys.
Current Vintage – 2016
Type of Closure – Srew Top
Bottle size – 750ml
Grape – 100% Cortese
Country – Italy
Points – 90
Food Pairings: Would go well with fish cakes and salad. Went very well with pizza!
