Natalie's Score: 89/100

Crisp and clean with terrific lemon zest and freshness. There's some yellow apple and white pear on a clean finish. The wines for Gavi di Gavi are made completely from Cortese grape and grown in the township of Gavi. Try this wine with a range of fresh seafood or vegetarian dishes.

Cortese food pairings: steamed mussels, clams.

Made from the Cortese grape and coming only from the township of Gavi itself, Gavi di Gavi wines tend to have more heft and impact than wines from the larger Gavi DOCG. Apple, white peach, cucumber peel, mineral and white flowers are all nicely represented on the nose. Quite big (as expected from these wines), crisp and refreshing with impressive concentration of fruit flavour and a long mineral finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, March 2013

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
