Stefano Massone Masera Gavi dei Gavi, Italy Piedmont 2019


Gavi was Italy's first white wine to gain international repute and is still considered one of the top-ranking Italian whites today. Made exclusively from the Cortese grape, a variety which has a heritage dating back to the 1600s, this is a wine that reflects its terroir. It 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, lemons, green apples and honeydew. It also often shows hints of almonds on the finish. The grapes do not offer high levels of potential alcohol, but it is certainly an age-worthy wine.
