Vintages Wine Panel: Cortese is an ancient variety, and the primary grape grown in the Gavi appellation. Refreshing lime, tangerine and candied fruit highlight the aromas and flavours, rounded out with some fine floral and stony notes. This medium-bodied white has a ripe fruit centre, a slight tang, and good length. Enjoy this Gavi. My note: Crisp and refreshing with mild flavours of white melon and peach. No heavy oak. Good aperitif.

Cortese food pairings: calamari, salmon in puff pastry.

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.
