Gavi, Alessandria

Villa Sparina

Gavi Cortese

Honeyed floral character, still crisp and dry. Quite enjoyable and good change from my typical white selections. Bottle shape was cool too. — a day ago

Fratelli Alessandria

Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Wonderful Barolo at 8 years. Perfect with some air with a great steak. Refined, classic, some fruit from the warmer year, but overall still quite seamless and perfumed. Long finish, great acid. — a month ago

Derthona Colli Tortonesi Timorasso 2021

I remember falling in love with Timorasso the first time I tried it a few years ago, and the story behind it. How the producer had grubbed out some acres of Cortese which makes the ubiquitous Gavi to produce the luscious, delicious, complex Timorasso. Pear being the overriding descriptor. Good value as well, when bought in Italy. — 21 days ago
