Natalie's Score: 90/100

White peach and Asian pear on the nose of this vibrant Italian white wine. 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. Finishes with notes of green apple, anise and lime. Pair with creamy cheeses or grilled prawns. 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. Also enjoy as an aperitif. A vibrant citrus finish. Pair with halibut or sole.

Gavi food pairings: creamy cheese, shellfish, seafood salads.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Always a killer white wine for patio sipping. The 2015 features unripe pear, stone fruit, white flowers, kumquat, and lime soda. Gorgeously delineated. 90 Points.
Gavi is made from the Cortese white wine grape in the southeast part of Piedmont. Cortese grape vines are planted on hillsides in calcareous-marl soil and so the name “Le Marne.” The wine is made 100% Cortese and has delicate melon, white peach, mineral and lightly toasted almond on the nose and palate. Good acidity here able to cut through the richest seafood dish. - Community Wine Reviews
