Northeastern Italy wine review
The wine region of Gavi has had its ups and downs. Quality hit a significant low in the nineteen-nineties with the push toward mass-production. We are now seeing a new high, after a decades-long push to rehabilitate the region’s reputation.
Fresh and appealing, the wine pops with white flavors: peaches and flowers, to be precise. It is deftly balanced, offering not just the brighness of acid, but it’s opposite as well: fleshy and creamy ripeness.
Fresh pear and white pepper are found in the long finish, along with spicy barrel notes.
