White floral nose then lime acidity on the palate to wake up your taste buds in this vibrant Italian white wine. Medium-bodied, clean and crisp. Great aperitif! A vibrant citrus finish. Finishes with notes of green apple, anise and lime. Pair with creamy cheeses or grilled prawns.

Food pairings: shellfish, seafood salads.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A pretty floral wine with white peach, citrus, pear and minrality dominate this renowned dry white wine from Italy. Made form 100% Cortese grapes in Piemonte. A refreshing tangy citrus finish make this a perfect choice for battered fish, shellfish with butter sauce or creamy pasta sauces. Serve well chilled.
Tasted: February 2015
The Italian wine region of Gavi 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.” This white wine is made 100% Cortese grapes. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
