L.J. Palmer WSET 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bright and pale lemon colour with a puckering mouthfeel.Aromas of sweet apple juice, pear, lime zest, cut grass, tree fruit almond and marzipan. A medium length finish of bright puckering citrus. Will pair nicely with simple grilled white fish, with herbs and olive oil and the wine has enough body to pair well with grilled salmon finished with a squeeze of lemon.
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lovely and refreshing. Aromas of lemon, pear and a floral hint. Light bodied, with bright acidity, and lots of pear and lemon on the palate. Enjoy with fresh seafood.

Natalie's Review

Marchesi di Barolo Gavi del Comune di Gavi 2018, Piedmont D.O.C.G., Italy: From the Marchesi di Barolo, a clean, crisp zesty Gavi (2018) with rich, ripe yellow apple, fresh pear, licorice flavours and a vibrant lemon juice acidity on the palate. Made from the Cortese wine grape grown in the township of Gavi. Pair with fresh seafood or vegetarian dishes. Marchesi di Barolo winery has been family-run for more than two centuries and five generations ago. Chill and enjoy now. Drink: 2019-2022. 155382 12.50% XD 750 mL  $22.95 Score: 89/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
