Gavi – Tesco Finest

blog 94

Tesco introduced this ‘Finest’ Gavi recently, from another big Italian producer Fratelli Martini Secondo Luigi SpA. ‘DOCG’ on bottles is perceived as being some kind of guarantee of quality – but this is not the case. I’ve been to Piemonte (Piedmont) a few times and I love Gavi and the Cortese grape.

Tasting notes: Citrus, white peach & orange blossom notes. Good acidity and texture.  This is good wine, well priced and compares well with the other Gavis I’ve reviewed – and at £6 (currently) is very good value.

Current Vintage – 2016
Type of Closure – Srew Top
Bottle size – 750ml
Grape – 100% Cortese

Points – 91
Food Pairings: Would go well with fish cakes and salad or grilled chicken dishes
