Natalie's Score: 90/100White floral nose then lime acidity on the palate to wake up your taste buds. Medium-bodied, clean and crisp. Great aperitif! A vibrant citrus finish. The Gavi region is in the southeast part of Piedmont and features Cortese grape vines planted on hillsides in calcareous-marl soil that is the reason for the name “Le Marne.”
Food pairings: shellfish, seafood salads. Scrumptious Seafood Wine

|Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Pale lemon in colour, ripe and youthful with floral aroma, this wine has flavours of green apple, peach, mango, sugar plum, candied orange rind, and a hint of anise. This zesty wine is medium-bodied with a refreshing, warming finish.
Pair with fish and chicken in simple herb sauces, or with creamy cheeses.
Ready to drink now. Keep for up to 18 months.
Date tasted: April 2014.

Clear pale lemon green. Youthful and refreshing. Pleasant aromas of peach, apple,pear,hay,floral,anise, citrus, vanilla. The fruit of this medium-bodied wine follow on the palate with some steely minerality, sugar plum,green apple and smoke. Nice length on a warming finish. Meant to be enjoyed now.
Seafood, grilled prawns, salad
